Quercus schumard
Schumard Red Oak
Family: Fagaceae

This tree is broad and deciduous with smooth, gray bark. The leaves are usually glossy and dark green. In fall the leaves turn red or golden brown. The flowers on the schumard red oak are like the flowers of other oaks in general: female flowers are tiny and held in small inconspicuous spikes, and male flowers are clustered in hanging catkins about 6" long. The red oak grows fairly fast and it produces acorns every 2-4 years. The red oak grows best in moist woody areas, near creeks or swamps. Hardiness zones 5-9. It can be found on the south side of the Administrative building.
