Pin Oak

(Quercus palustris)

Pin oak grows to be up to 75 feet tall, with a spread of about 40 feet. Pin oak produces shiny, dark green, lobed leaves that are 3 to 6 inches long. These leaves turn bronze or a rusty color in the fall. Pin oak produces small acorns that squirrels love, particularly the Eastern Grey Squirrels that call Northampton Community College home.
