Red oak is a medium to large tree. Leaves turn red to brown. It is very hardy once it establishes a good root system and can be long lived. Northern Minnesota is the north edge of it’s range, but it is very adaptable. Trees have a wide spread when given ample growing space, but are more narrow in dense woods.
Acorns are eaten by a variety of wildlife. Red oak has valuable timber, but it is rare to find trees with good form in far northern Minnesota.
