About The Scarlet Oak Tree

A native oak with stunning red fall foliage!

The Scarlet Oak (Quercus coccinea), also called Black Oak, Red Oak, or Spanish Oak is best known for its brilliant autumn color. It is a medium-sized shade tree with a straight trunk and a rounded, open crown. It is a fast-growing tree native to the Eastern United States forests, found in Maine and New York down south as far as Florida, and as west as Missouri.

Growing up to 60-80ft. tall, this landscape specimen serves as a good lawn and street tree, with shiny green, lobed leaves in the summer that turn scarlet red in the fall. Scarlet Oak is hardy and adaptable to many soil types. It’s quickly becoming a popular choice for those who want seasonal interest in their landscapes!
