Black Oak – 0-091

Tree Description:

0-091​ – The Black Oak (Quercus velutina) is one of the other most common trees that already were here when the cemetery was founded. They seldom live as long as white oaks or bur oaks but several of them, including this one, still survive today more than 150 years later. Black oaks can become very large and picturesque, with colorful staminate flower catkins as well as bright red spring and fall foliage. Like other red oaks, they take two years to mature acorns.
