NotesA large tree for such a restricted site, this native of the eastern USA can suffer from water stress because of the surrounding tarmac and this distorts the leaves.  Other Red Oaks, such as the large one by the car park in Knowle, show the usual large leaves up to 20cm (8ins) long with pointed lobes.  Red Oaks are planted for their autumn colour, as the name suggests, the leaves turn red.  In their native range the red can be brilliant, but our climate brings about a more muted copper colour.  More about Red Oaks if you click here.info
