The southern red oak thrives in the hot, humid environment of central Maryland, including Montgomery County. Its leaves are shiny, dark green on the top and pale and fuzzy below. Their long, slender lobes are distinctive in shape. Southern red oaks turn vivid reds and yellows in the fall. This fast-growing tree often grows as much as two feet a year.
