The shingle oak is an adaptable tree with strong wood and branches. The wood was used by pioneers to make shingles, hence the name. The leaves are red or yellow when young, turning green in the summer, then back to a more vibrant yellow or russet-red in the fall. The shingle oak’s leaves may persist into the winter making it great for screening. Like all oaks, it produces acorns.
