Aliza’s Tree of the Month – QUERCUS palustris – Pin Oak 🍂❄ – 12th July 2021

Here we have our third edition of our Staff Tree of the Month Video Series. 

This week we have Alizas favourite tree. Aliza’s work includes sales and marketing in the office, along with tree care outdoors.

Aliza’s favourite tree this month is the stunning QUERCUS palustris – Pin oak. This video was filmed in autumn with their amazing autumn colour, but currently these are looking great in the winter landscape with their coppery winter foliage.

Shown above are specimens in Millbrook, Queenstown, looking stunning in the snow. Installed approx 6 years ago.
