‘Fastigiata’ English Oak
Quercus robur ‘Fastigiata’
A good tree, a tree that should do well in Keizer.
The English Oak was first discovered growing wild in a forest in Germany and was propagated by grafting in 1783.
This deciduous tree matures into a dense elongated oval shape with a short trunk. It grows moderately-fast up to 50 to 60 feet high and only 10-18 feet wide. The leaves are 2.5 to 5 inches by 1 to 2.5 inches. Their leaves maintain their dark color throughout the year until they turn brown in autumn. They often remain on the tree for some time before dropping. The attractive, dark brown bark is deeply ridged and furrowed, and the one-inch acorns persist on the tree during winter.
