Northern Pin Oak

Quercus ellipsoidalis


Quercus ellipsoidalis, Northern Pin Oak or Hill's Oak, is native to the northern midwest United States, and also in the southeast and southwest of Ontario, Canada. It occurs on moist, clay soils. Although the name suggests an alliance to the Pin Oak Q. palustris, it has traditionally been thought to be closely related to the Scarlet Oak Q. coccinea, and was in fact included in that species by many botanists.


It grows on moist, clay soils.
