NORTHERN PIN OAK
Northern Pin Oak is a stately tree, native to the midwest. Narrow in youth, it will develop a rounded crown with age. Like the Pin Oak, the upper branches of this tree are ascending in form and the lower branches descend towards the ground. It develops a deep taproot, making it drought tolerant once established. Glossy, green leaves take on a russet color in fall. Mature bark has shallow fissures creating narrow plates. Prune only while dormant. Sometimes called Hill’s Oak, in the red oak group.
