The beauty of the Scarlet Oak Tree 

  The Scarlet Oak Tree is more of a hardy tree so it can grow anywhere in the United States that has the four to nine hardiness zone. This tree is not very picky when it comes to soil either, for it can grow in a wide range of soils that do not have alkaline. Also, this tree does have some “drought tolerance” it is best for it to have a steady watering schedule, however. Taking that information into account, the Scarlet Oak Tree does require to be planted in an area that allows for six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight. So, having the tree at least six feet away from the sides of the building that will block the morning or afternoon sun will be ideal. 

The Scarlet Oak has beautiful red Fall foliage.

 Another reason for picking just that right spot in your yard or landscape area is the size and speed of the growth that this tree has. The Scarlet Oak tree is part of the “medium growth rate” group. It grows at the pace of thirteen to twenty-four inches per year. At its maturity, the Scarlet Oak Tree ranges from sixty to eighty feet tall, and the “crown” ranges from forty to fifty feet wide. Make sure you take this growth rate into account when picking the location that it will soon call home because this tree grows tall but is also round.

 This tree provides light shade, but that is not the only reason to buy this tree. One of the biggest reasons to have a Scarlet Oak Tree in your location is the color of the leaves. During the Spring and Summer seasons, these beautiful glossy leaves grow at the top of the tree while paler green leaves towards the bottom of the tree. However, when fall and winter seasons come is when the Scarlet Oak’s secret is revealed. The levels change colors like the leaves on other trees do. However, the color the leaves on a Scarlet Oak turns to is a magnificent red. The leaves are roughly four to seven inches wide, which helps them stand out against snowy backdrops. Not many can enjoy a picture-perfect holiday card cover up close and in person. 

Scarlet Oak trees make wonderful shade trees.

 Besides the beauty of the leaves, the acorns that grow on these trees are only one inch big. You will see wildlife around the tree, eating the acorns every year. However, every three to five years, the Scarlet Oak produces large batches of acorns to have the most significant amount of wildlife around those times. Depending on where you live, you could have more than just birds building their nests. “Songbirds, wild turkeys, squirrels, and white-tailed deer” are known to come around Scarlet Oaks, according to the Arbor Day Foundation.

 The Scarlet Oak Tree is perfect for so many different landscape and yard themes that you can not go wrong with this tree. Remember how fast this tree grows, its maturity size, and the sunlight requirements when you go about planting the tree and watch the beauty unfold right before your ever eyes.

When looking for a tree to fill space in your yard or be used in a business landscape, you need to have an idea of what you would like to have both look and size-wise. Some trees might not work because they end up being too short and attract too many bugs while others are just too thin and look like tall weeds after a couple of months. Thankfully neither of these categories can touch the beauty, grace, and splendor of the Scarlet Oak Tree.
