The Shumard Red Oak is an American tree that is highly adaptable, and one of the best choices available for a large shade tree, especially in warmer areas with hot, dry summers. It grows into a majestic spreading tree at least 40 feet tall and 30 feet wide, and often much larger in time. In fall the leaves turn brilliant crimson, even in states not known for fall color. Like other oak trees it is very long lived, and it will still be here hundreds of years from now – so you are planting a legacy. But it also grows moderately fast, so within a few years you will have a handsome specimen tree. Plant it on a large lawn as a shade tree, or among other trees in a wooded area. A row is a wonderful way to mark the line of your property for generations to come.

  • Majestic, long-lived specimen tree
  • Large leathery deep-green leaves
  • Rich red fall colors, even in hot areas
  • Grows well in both dry and wet soils
  • Grows well across almost all the country

The Shumard Oak tree should be planted in full sun, or in partial shade where it can grow up into the sun. It grows in a wide range of soils, both acidic and alkaline, and it thrives in moist or dry soils. It is very drought resistant once it is established, making it ideal for areas with hot, dry summers. Although all oak trees can have pests and diseases, these rarely present any serious issues, and this tree will thrive with minimum care and be a wonderful specimen in your garden. Simply plant it and watch your legacy grow.
