Water Oak

Quercus nigra - Water Oak


The Water Oak is a broadly conical, deciduous tree with smooth brown then dark grey bark. Its dark green leaves are usually in a spoon shaped form then turning a yellowish brown color in the fall. It is a moderate-fast growing Oak and can reach 50-80 feet tall and 40-60 foot across. The Water Oak can tolerate occasional flooding, hence the name, but does not do as well on drier sites as many Oaks do. Also the Water Oak does not tolerate alkaline soils, the foliage becomes chlorotic.
