Live Oak Trees

Identifying a Type of Tree


Anonymous added on April 10, 2017 | Answered

I am trying to identify a type of tree I have seen used as an ornamental in landscaping. The leaves look like an oak leaf. The trees keep their leaves through the winter (although they turn brown) and drop them in the spring just before the new leave come out. The trees only grow 10 to 20 ft tall, and about 5 ft wide, in a cylindrical shape. They seem like they would make a great privacy screen between houses. Can anyone tell me what kind of tree I am looking for. PS I live in Northern UT. Doug

There are many cultivators of Dwarf Oak's.
You may want to take an image to your local County Extension Office for help in identifying the trees that are growing in your specific region.
Here are some links with more information.
