Native to eastern North America, Quercus imbricaria is a medium sized, vigorous tree with long narrow, unlobed leaves. These leaves are glossy, dark green in spring and summer turning shades of golden-yellow and purple in autumn before falling. Established specimens have smooth greyish-brown bark which were used by early settlers for shingles on roofs (hence the common name of 'Shingle Oak').
Handsome tree suitable for larger gardens, woodland & parkland areas.
