Burr Oak: Large Waterwise Tree For Utah

Burr Oak (Quercus macrocarpa) - native to Eastern and Midwestern North America - is a good choice for a large waterwise tree for Utah urban landscapes.  While it is not a native to the Intermountain West,  it does well in our climate and in the various soil conditions that can be found in Utah.  Here is a link from Utah State University Cooperative Extension Service that tells all about Burr Oak!
