Trees
Red Oak

Quercus rubra (Red Oak)


Quercus rubra (Red Oak, or Northern Red Oak). There are many specimens of this species scattered around the quadrangle, cleared wooded areas, and the Galvin Hall entrance to the natural area. Leaves have sharp points rather than the rounded tips of the white oaks. Indentations in the leaves are less deep than those of the pin oak, the species on campus most similar to the red oak.
