Willow Oak Tree - Quercus Phellos
The mighty Willow oak tree can be used in a garden for its beauty or shade.
It is both majestic in appearance and large enough in scale to create a decent amount of shade for those standing below its ample branches.
The willow oak tree is different from other oak trees because the leaves of the tree resemble willow tree leaves. The willow oak tree produces yellow-green or light green leaves in the spring. Then the leaves turn a dark brown in the summer months. During the winter, the leaves turn red, yellow, orange and brown.
The willow oak tree can grow up to forty feet or sixty feet tall. The tree is usually fully mature at about thirty feet or forty feet in width. When fully mature the willow oak tree creates acorns, which will then either be eaten by small animals or will fall to the earth to start the growth of more willow oak trees.
The tree requires six hours of direct sunlight each day, so planting it somewhere with constant sunshine is a must. This type of tree thrives in wet or clay soils. The hardy planting zones for the willow oak tree include five to nine. The tree is naturally found in central and eastern North America nearby to bodies of water.
The willow oak tree can grow in zones from 5-9 throughout the majority of the United States except in parts of the upper northern region close to Canada, such as North Dakota and Minnesota and makes an excellent ornamental tree or shade tree. The best time to plant the tree is in the early spring. If using an acorn to start a tree, the acorns must be kept cold and damp during the winter months.
The tree is also used to make panels for homes, pulpits, and pews for churches, bar tops, and stairs for homes and businesses. Many small animals such as squirrels, deer, and birds are happy to see this tree since it produces many acorns for them to eat. The leaves of the tree turn different colors depending on which season it is. During the summer the leaves are light and dark green, and during the autumn the leaves are yellow or a russet red.
