The Bur Oak is definitely an impressive sight to behold. With a coarsely textured crown, wild and wooly acorns and a massive truck with rough and deeply furrowed bark, it is definitely leaves an impression. Usually wider than tall, the Bur Oak is a great choice for parks, institutional grounds, and expansive yards.
The Bur Oak yields acorns that are larger than most others, with a conspicuously fringed cap that extends about halfway down the nut. Also features alternating leaves that are 6”-12” long with 5-9 lobes separated about halfway down by a pair of particularly deep sinuses.
