Post oak – Quercus stellata
Post oak has a beautiful branching structure that speaks to rugged determination and strength.  The silhouette of this tree is almost iconic.  They grow mostly in sandy soils and are the dominant species of the Cross Timbers ecosystem.  If you have Post oak on your property & you are considering removing some; think long & hard about this because these beautiful trees cannot be replaced in your lifetime.  Post oaks are not often found at nurseries so if you have the chance to plant one on your property, don’t pass up the occasion!
