General tree description

Quercus x schochiana is a naturally occuring hybrid of the Pin oak and Willow oak (Q.palustris and Q. phellos). It is a medium sized rounded tree up to around 15 metres tall. The leaves are glossy green, often Willow-like in shape but with variable lobes and sometimes none. They may turn a bright yellow colour in autumn, or in a mild year stay green and remain on the tree into winter.
