Pin Oaks

Pin  Oaks.

From small acorn
To mighty oak
Leaves bid twigs adieu

Pin oak is named for a characteristic where small, thin, dead branches stick out like pins from the main trunk. Pin oak is among the most widely planted native oaks in the urban landscape, the third most common street tree in New York City. It tolerates drought, poor soils and is easy to transplant. It is popular because of an attractive shape and trunk. The green, glossy leaves show brilliant red to bronze fall color. ~ Bernard
