Quercus palustris - Pin Oak

Moderately fast growing tree with a pyramidal form, often with upper branches reaching up, middle branches reaching horizontally, and lower branches swooping downward.

Simple leaves up to 10" long are 5-7 lobed with rounded sinuses and pointed pin-like protrusions at the tips.

Wide acorns with a shallow cup mature in the fall of the second season.

Smooth grayish brown bark with shallow vertical furrows.
