In the Garden
A medium sized tree to about 15m, the Forest Oak is found from the southern coast of NSW up to the top of Cape York. It’s dense canopy and flaky bark make it a very attractive tree and it is widely planted as a street tree and for creating a wind break. Drought tolerant and easygoing.
Whilst the tree prefers a temperate climate, it can tolerate minor frosts and can be grown successfully in most parts of Australia. It can be grown in most soil types although it prefers a well draining soil and one that is pH neutral or slightly acidic.
