Quercus buckleyi-Texas Red Oak

 While similar in appearance to the chinquapin oak, the Texas red oak has more deeply-lobed leaves that turn red in the late fall. Native to the hill country west of San Antonio, Texas red oak will form a medium-sized tree 25-30 feet tall and wide. This cold-hardy tree seems happier at higher elevations! Specimens planted in hot exposures in the Phoenix area have suffered some leaf burn in the summer. USDA Zone 6.
