Commemorative trees are a meaningful way to remember a special person or event in your life. Consider dedicating space for a “commemorative grove” in your landscape, where you and your family can sit in the shade, recall happy times of the past and dream of a beautiful future.

Northern Red Oak Northern Red Oak

A relatively fast-growing, strong shade tree, Quercus rubra is a beautiful native to plant in honor of someone you love. Its large, dark green leaves turn deep red to orange-red in autumn, and its chestnut-brown acorns are enjoyed by wildlife in fall. Northern red oak performs well in full to partial sun and well-drained, average to fertile soil. It can reach 60 to 80 feet tall and 60 to 70 feet wide, so give it room to grow!
