Native shade tree - own root. Resilience’s™ uniqueness resides in the lustrous leathery leaves, changing yellow and burnt orange in fall. Leaf drop is clean and uniform, without the lingering dried brown foliage common to many oak species. The grey-brown winter branches and trunk assume a scaly texture, presenting a sculptural silhouette in the winter landscape. Branches are upswept, making Resilience™ Overcup Oak a perfect street tree. Resilience™ is very tolerant of heavy low-oxygen/wet urban soils, while adaptable to drier conditions.
