Columnar English Oak

Columnar English Oak is a deciduous tree that grows moderately fast.  This tree works well in small spaces because it grows tall and narrow.  With this tree variety, you can get the beauty of an oak tree without compromising the growing space needed to house a larger species of oak.  This tree is commonly planted along streets and in landscapes.  Since Columnar English Oak still produces acorns, you should take this into consideration when placing this tree.  Smaller trees will not pose much of a nuisance, but larger trees may produce large amounts of acorns.  This tree is also deer resistant which makes it a great candidate for wooded plantings.
