Medium growing (13-24" per year), great growth habit requiring little training of branches, and very drought tolerant. This is a superb street tree. Arbor Day Foundation: "An important tree in difficult urban landscaping situations with uniform branching forming a rounded shape with an open crown. The overcup oak grows in acidic, loamy, sandy, well-drained, wet and clay soils. While it prefers well-drained conditions, it can withstand considerable flooding." Acorns attract waterfowl. May be difficult to find, but is becoming of interest for street landscaping. Features: wildlife. Full sun to partial shade. Wet soil tolerant.
