Nuttall oak is a red oak similar to Shumard Oak, but this one can tolerate wetter conditions. It naturally grows in the upper terraces of floodplains where its root system can be underwater periodically, but it also does fine in drier sites when established. Seeds tend to be much larger than Shumard Oak, and they also drop later, sometimes into November. Of the deciduous red oaks, this one also tends to hold onto its leaves longer, often into December. This one does tend to be slightly pickier about soil conditions, disliking alkaline conditions and doing best in neutral to acidic pH.
