Cherrybark Oak (Quercus pagoda) is a native deciduous tree and one of the most highly valued red oaks in SE USA. It prefers rich, well-drained bottomland soils, but is adaptable to drier sites in full sun to partial shade. Large (to 100 ft. or more), fast growing, and well-formed. Regular branching forms a broad round crown of glossy, dark green foliage. Fall color is yellow-brown and the leaves drop in autumn.
The large tree that was removed from the front of the Stinson House was a cherrybark oak.
Uses: Cherrybark Oak can be used as a shade tree in large areas. It can also be used for erosion control, reforestation, and wetland restoration. Wildlife benefits are food and cover.
