The Shumard Oak is an excellent upright, moderate to fast growing shade tree with a dense canopy of sharply pointed leaves. Widely adapted to Central Texas, It is found on rich bottomland soils, moist woods and along streams in the eastern third of Texas. It is fast-growing, with an open canopy and stout spreading branches. Its deciduous leaves turn brilliant red, yellow, and orange before they drop in the fall. This tree will grow 50 – 60 feet tall in good soil. It grows the tallest on moist, well-drained soils but is also adapted to drier limestone soils and high pH levels. This tree is susceptible to Oak Wilt, so I do not recommend planting in contaminated soil and of course always practice safe trimming.
