The pin oak is a very popular oak due to its narrow crown shaped like a pyramid. This tree has a single trunk and many small horizontal branches, rather than a spreading crown. Its bright green glossy leaves turn a brilliant red to bronze color in the fall. Many leaves remain on the tree through the winter to provide screening.
