Oak - Red - Shumard

Marcum's Nursery recommends this spectacular, large, rounded shaped shade tree for any front or back yard. Its lustrous green foliage in summer turns brilliant red-orange in the fall. Tolerant of Oklahoma's diverse soil and climate conditions, the Shumard oak is an excellent choice.
