“Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it.”
~ E.O. Wilson, Biodiversity
The southern look-alike for the Pin Oak, native to the lower Mississippi River Valley, but adapts and grows well in many areas. Does not hold its leaves in winter. Acorns are 3/4″ – 1 1/4″ long & covered 1/3 – 1/2 by cap. A fast growing and adaptable oak that should be planted more. The Nuttall is tolerant of wet soils and high pH. Try it instead of Pin Oak!
