A stately shade tree which can grow 50′-70′ tall and nearly as wide.  Dark green, glossy leaves are deeply cut with pointed lobes, turning scarlet red in the fall.  A long-lived, durable, low maintenance tree without the chlorosis problems of the closely related Pin Oak.  Good for dry areas.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
