Upperton Willow Oak is a fast-growing native deciduous tree with a strong central leader and uniform upright branching forming a pyramidal crown when young that opens to oval with age.  Its dark green willow-like foliage emerges mid-spring and turns bronzy yellow in fall. The round acorns are an important source of food for wildlife.  Best grown in full sun and rich, moist well-drained soils.  Tolerates both dry and wet soils and is very urban tolerant.
