This week's tree is long overdue for a showcase and it just happens to be iTrees.com owner, Marlee Harford's favorite tree! Shingle Oak is a native to the midwest and more specifically to the #CHICAGOLAND area. This large shade tree has unique unlobed leaves, which are different from what we are used to seeing in an Oak.
Reasons why Marlee loves this tree →
- Dark green, glossy leaves in the spring & summer
- Unique Oak tree with its unlobed leaves
- Gold to rusty red fall color
- Large shade tree
- Native tree
- Attracts wildlife
