A good tree to plant: Texas Red Oak

A good to plant in the houston area is the Texas Red Oak. These trees do well here and have less disease problems than your non native trees that nurseries sell in the area. I like these trees because they are self pruning and do not have many root and limb problems. Here are the specifics on this tree:

Plant Habitat: Medium tree

Exposure: Full Sun

Flower Color:Red Brownish Leaf

Blooming: Spring

Height: 75 feet

Width: 60 feet

Plant Character: Deciduous

Heat Tolerance:High

Water Requirement:Low

Soil Requirement:alkaline adaptable
