Northern Pin Oak

Quercus ellipsoidalis • Hills Oak, Jack Oak

Native

Northern pin oak is a North American tree species, native to north-central United States and south-central Canada, although it is considered rare in Canada. It resembles pin oak but lives on more upland sites (dry, rocky, sandy) and acorns are elongated. It does well on poor soils and is the most drought tolerant of the black oaks. Northern pin oak is planted as an ornamental tree, popular for its bright red fall color and tolerance of infertile sandy soils. The wood is used for fence posts, fuel and general construction.

Leaf

Long, shiny green above, some hairs beneath. Deep sinuses and sharply pointed lobes.

Fruit/Seed

Acorns with hairy, light brown scales that cover 1/4 to 1-/2 of the acorn

Bark

Greyish brown with shallow ridges
