Quick Overview:

Laurel oak is commonly planted as a street tree because it is tolerant of poor conditions, grows fast and doesn’t get as large as some other oaks. It is a favorite shade tree for residential landscapes. Laurel oak is tardily deciduous, meaning it drops a few of its old leaves during the winter, but sheds most of them all at once as the new leaves unfurl and flowering begins in early spring.

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.
