25g Pin Oak
Quercus palustris


The pin oak grows to a height of 60–70' and a spread of 25–40' at maturity.

This tree grows at a fast rate, with height increases of more than 24" per year. The name pin oak comes from its short, tough branchlets located along the branches and limbs. Because of its tolerance for wet conditions, the tree is also known regionally as swamp oak, water oak, and swamp Spanish oak.
