Lacey Oak: Quercus lacey

Lacey Oak

Height; 25 – 35 feet, Spread; 15 – 30 feet.
This is a beautiful tree that is also known as the Blue Oak, amongst other names, because it starts with light red colored leaves in the spring which eventually turn to greenish blue. In the fall, this tree’s leaves give way to a seasonal golden color. Lacey Oaks are deciduous, so this semi evergreen will lose it’s leaves. As it grows it can form multiple trunks, but nurseries will prune the Lacey to grow into a single trunk. It will tolerate droughts, and many soil conditions.
