This a very handsome columnar oak that brings you the gorgeous oak leaves in a smaller vertical narrow form to fit into narrow places. It is a great tree to be appreciated up close, and it does not take up a lot of space. It is cold hardy and relatively drought tolerant, and is just a fascinating tree for next to a walkway, driveway, on a parking island or just close by to be appreciated as a beautiful Oak tree.
They hold onto their leaves late into the fall offering privacy and beauty. The leaves in the spring and the summer are dark green with a beautiful silver underside which is displayed on a windy day. One gets to see what is usually at the top of large Oak trees but now right up close and personal. Highly recommended!
