Comprising plants ranging from tall deciduous and evergreen trees to more shrubby plants, Quercus (the oaks) is recognized throughout the eastern U.S. for their important roles as shade trees in our cities. Join Todd Lasseigne and explore the great diversity of native and non-native oaks (and other relatives) that are thriving in the JCRA collections.
