Planted in 2010 at the Dumont Arbor Day festivities. A Large Tree, it will grow well over 50′ at maturity.
Red Oak, Quercus rubra, is the New Jersey State Tree. Oak Trees are the National American Tree.
This popular tree can live for hundreds of years with strong wood and dense shade for cooling us all on hot summer days. If you have space in your lawn, oak trees are a great choice. In Autumn, tourist season in New England wouldn’t be complete with out the rusty brown of our native oaks!
Some of our Dumont Heritage Trees are Oak Trees… do you know of a tree over 36″ wide at 4’6″ above the ground? Click Here to see more about Heritage Trees.
Look for our young Red Oak north of the Gazebo… next to our White Oak. Can you see the different leaves and branch structure?
The Dumont Shade Tree Commission has approved the Red Oak and White Oak Trees for the Adopt-A-Tree Program, but not under utilitiy wires! To Apply for an Adopt-A-Tree, contact Borough Hall, or Click Here.
