Quercus phellos (Willow Oak)

Willow Oak

It grows in low, bottomland, acid wet sites of flood plains yet is drought-tolerant. It thrives in constantly wet to moist soil, although it has been known to adapt to seemingly impossible habitats. Fibrous root system makes transplanting rather easy. Willow Oak is a tough tree well adapted to urban conditions, but can develop chlorosis of high pH soils. Willow Oak has few major problems and tolerates clay, salt, poor drainage and compacted soil. Wood weighs about 69 pounds per cubic foot.
