Quercus velutina

Black oak is a common, medium-sized to large oak of the eastern and midwestern United States. It is sometimes called yellow oak, quercitron, yellowbark oak, or smooth bark oak.

As the Chinese proverb goes, "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." This little seedling will ultimately grow to 80 -100' tall with aaa average life span of up to 200 years. A medium grower, you can enjoy nurturing it and transferring to sequentially larger pots before transferring outdoors. As a deciduous tree it wil change color and drop their leaves in the fall and leaf out with dark-green foliage in early and mid-summer. In forest stands, black oak begins to produce seeds at about age 20 and reaches optimum production at 40 to 75 years. It is a consistent seed producer with good crops of acorns every 2 to 3 years.
