Quercys Xcomptoniae

Compton Oak is a rare hybrid species between Live Oak (quercus virginiana) and Overcup Oak (quercus lyrata). The attractive bark is reminiscent of White Oak, where it appears to peel or flake from the trunk. This tree has a very fast growth rate with a central leader and radially spreading branches, and a broad, round growth habit.

Height: 70 ft.
Spread: 70 ft.
Trunk: 9 ft. circumference

Lifespan: 75-150 years

Climate: Resilience to urban conditions make this an excellent alternative to more common species.

Leaf Identification: Deep foliage, lustrous green leaves persist into December, and may turn a rusty orange to yellow in the fall.
