0-070 A giant black oak (Quercus velutina) is a spectacular example of one of the most common native trees here at Oak Ridge that date back to the founding of the cemetery. Black oaks tolerate adverse soil conditions as well as considerable drought. The color of their spring catkins is bright and attractive, giving this oak credentials as a flowering tree. There are several other mature black oaks within the area of this tour – see if you can find some of them.
