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 consider this when placing this tree. Smaller trees will not pose much of a nuisance, but larger trees may produce large amounts of acorns. The acorns have a little fruit the size of a marble with a cap on top. The cap is bumpy and holds the fruit to the tree. This tree is also deer resistant which makes it an excellent candidate for wooded plantings. As with any young tree, it is essential to protect the bark during the fall when deer are in the rut.
Columnar English Oak will grow up to fifty feet tall when fully mature. This variety will grow fifteen feet wide when it is mature. This oak works best when planted in full sun environments. If you are looking for a beautiful specimen tree to add to your landscape, consider installing the Columnar English Oak.
