Latin: Quercus palustris
Other common names: Pin oak, Swamp Spanish oak tree
Mature Height: 60-70 ft. Dense with numerous twigs. The trunk can grow up to 3 feet in diameter
Soil / Climate: Native mainly to the Eastern part of the United States. It is more native to wetlands and develops shallow, fibrous roots(which makes it easy to transplant), unlike many other oaks. It likes acidic soils, and does not tolerate limestone or shade very well.
Notes: Pin Oak is one of the most popular ornamental trees in the United States. Makes a nice attractive shade tree because of its unique branching habit. The acorn is small with a thin cap and unpalatable because the kernel is very bitter. The wood is hard and heavy. It is generally used in construction and for firewood.
Wildlife: Pin Oak acorns are on the food list for numerous types of wildlife such as wild turkeys, grouse, whitetail deer, black bears, chipmunks and squirrels.
Cold Stream Farm supplies Pin Oak trees which are grown as bare root seedlings and transplants and sold both wholesale and retail with no minimum order.
