Go Back Oak Northern Pin Majestic Skies

Quercus ellipsoidalis 'Bailskies'

Plant Type: Deciduous Trees

An attractive shade tree.  A distinct improvement over the species with straighter branching and more evenly sized.  Foliage is more substantial and darker green.  Excellent red fall color.  Neither the flowers nor the fruit are significant, but the fruit can be messy in the landscape.  The furrowed gray bark and silver branches add an interesting dimension.  Northern pin oaks prefer to grow in full sun with deep, well-drained soil.
