Quercus pubescens

Striking characters, a distinctive almost corky bark and a slightly smaller leaf than many other oaks. Quercus pubescens (downy oak) is a fantastic species that brings with it an atmosphere of its own.

It is a somewhat slower grower but can grow into a large tree depending on conditions. Its late autumn colouring goes from warm golden yellow to brown. They often retain their brown leaves for a long time in winter.

Quercus pubescens emerges fresh green in foliage in spring.

With the specimens that are above ground, we like to experiment. We regularly reposition or combine them in a different way. This way, we also get to know our own trees and their effect in different contexts better.
The brown leaves remain on the tree for a long time in winter or sometimes even until early spring.
The layer of snow on the bark accentuates the character of the trunks.
