Bur Oak

Native from Nova Scotia to Manitoba and south to Pennsylvania and Texas, this beautiful oak has attractive corky bark especially interesting in winter. A great xeriscape plant, it tolerates a wide range of soil types and air pollutants. Voted 2001 Urban Tree of the Year by the Society of Municipal Arborists.  This is the variety we most typically see in southwestern Minnesota.
