Quick Overview:

Laurel Oak is a semi-evergreen to a deciduous shade tree in the red oak family that is native to the southeastern U.S.A. from Virginia to Florida and west to Texas. In North Carolina, it can be found in moderately dry to seasonally flooded soils of floodplains and swamp margins in the Piedmont and coastal plain areas. It generally grows 40-60 feet tall.  Laurel Oak is adaptable to various soil types even poorly drained clay soil. It will grow in full sun to partial shade. Use this tree as a shade tree in lawns or parks.

Description

Tolerant of poor conditions, grows fast and doesn’t get as large as some other oaks. The Laurel oak thrives in well drained soils and is tolerant of normal droughts that might occur within its natural range. The wood is coarse grained, heavy and hard, and not good for lumber. It makes good firewood.
