70. Shumard Oak

Noted for its attractive leaves, Shumard Oak is an underutilized native which deserves wider planting as a street tree. It is a member of the red oak subgroup, denoted by bristle-tipped lobes and bi-yearly acorn crops. It can be confused with Black Oak (Quercus Velutina), Scarlet Oak (Q. coccinea), Nutall Oak (Q. nuttallii), Pin Oak (Q. palustris) and Northern Red Oak (Q. rubra).
