The red oak tree is a native America tree that grows in hardy planting zones 3 to 9.
This makes it a tree that you can plant almost everywhere, as it tolerates various climatic zones. Red oak also does well in the European climate and other similar climatic zones.
The tree blooms seasonally from mid-spring to late spring. During this time, the tree grows a lot of new leaves that add to its cover and help to break the wind. The blossoming also contributes to the scenic beauty of the tree. As the tree blossoms, it refreshes itself and flowers. The sight is usually a beautiful lush green background that gives life to the surrounding.
Red oak usually blooms in yellow-green color. The leaves are yellowish after blossoming and slowly turn green as they mature. The tree retains the leaves for a long time until autumn during which they change to reddish-brown or reddish-orange color. The blossoming color of the tree offers a scenic and colorful background at different times of the year, which also makes the tree highly aesthetic.
At maturity, red oak attains a height of 70 feet to 100 feet.
During this time, its roots are deep in the soil. Its taproots usually grow downwards, something that makes it suitable for parks, in open spaces outside buildings.
One of the best things about red oak is that it can survive in a variety of soil types. It does well in sandy to loamy soils. The tree survives pretty well on slightly acidic soils too alkaline soils. This explains why the tree is a common sight in many localities.
Most importantly, red oak does well when grown under partial sun and shade. 4-6 hours of sunlight are enough for red oak to establish itself. It spreads to provide shed for various social activities at home and outside the office.
