Black Oak (Quercus velutina)

This native oak is similar in appearance to Red Oak. One of the main differences include its ability to thrive on poor and varied soils. The thick, nearly black bark is marked with deep furrows and irregularly broken ridges. Good for dry, wind-swept areas. *2015 GreatPlants Winner
