The willow oak (Quercus phellos) is a deciduous tree native to the northern and eastern United States.
This region spans from the Long Island sound (the southernmost portion) to the northernmost point, as far south as northern Florida, west to Midwestern states such as Illinois, Oklahoma, and the easternmost point of Texas, and east to the Atlantic Ocean. Willow Oak Trees can be found along the coastlines or near bodies of water and even thrive in areas with poor drainage.
Their foliage features an electric light green during the spring, which shifts to a brownish-yellow color during the fall season. The tree produces fruit in the form of acorns right around 15 (earlier than most oak species). Squirrels and other similar wildlife feed on the acorns produced by this tree.
Their quick growth rate (about 2 feet per year after maturity) and the lumber they produce make them a popular choice for logging.
The leaves it produces are easy to pick up and easy to mow, which helps concerning its upkeep.
The willow oak’s overall shape, size, and color throughout the year make it a fine addition to any landscape. It starts with a cone-esque shape when young and rounds out as it reaches maturity. Its overall shape and color make it a fine choice to brighten up any landscape throughout the year. It produces acorns that attract various wildlife, and its wood has many uses, from logging to decor.
