Definition of pin oak in English:
A North American oak with deeply lobed, toothed leaves. Its dead branches remain in position and resemble pegs fixed in the trunk.
- Quercus palustris
- While oak wilt is a problem in many states, it is still isolated enough to allow you to consider the pin oak a good option for planting when you have the right spot with the right conditions.
- The one pin oak that remains is a dwarf compared to its possible counterpart growing by Strouble's Creek in good lush, undisturbed soil.
- This condition is most common in pin oak and silver maple but can occur in many other tree and shrub species.
