Northern Red Oak Trees can be found all around the United States and especially here in our state of Missouri. These long lived, strong native trees are sometimes looked over when it comes to being a shade tree, usually because most big box stores do not sell these along with many other native trees. Not only can Northern red oak trees grow somewhat quick, they are also really strong and will provide you with good shade. This is not a tree you will have to worry about cutting down or dying off in your lifetime, the average lifespan of a northern red oak is 150 years! Bristle-tipped leaves turn red in the fall. The leaves have 7 to 11 waxy lobes. A good street tree, tolerates pollution and compacted soil. Grows as much as two feet a year for 10 years.
