  1. pin oak

    A pin oak is a type of fast-growing, deciduous tree native to North America. Its scientific name is Quercus palustris and it's known for its distinctive pin-like twigs and deeply lobed leaves, which range from bright green in the spring and summer to a striking red or brown in the autumn. It's commonly used for landscaping due to its pyramidal shape when young, which turns into a broad oval shape as it gets older. The pin oak prefers wet soil conditions, hence its Latin name ‘palustris’ meaning 'of a swamp'.
