Ornamental tree which can be grown as an isolated tree, for reforestation or as a bonsaï. The wood is used to make casks, furniture and paving.
Deciduous tree of almost 35m tall with yellow flowers. The acorn has a cupule with thick and almost filled scales.
It adapts very well to any types of soils.
Dig a hole at least two or three times as wide and deep as the root ball. Take out the plant from the container and loosen roots to allow them to spread out in all direction. Cut possible broken roots. Mix the soil extracted with a substrate and fill part of the hole with the mixture obtained. Place the plant in the hole and cover with the remaining mixture. Compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.
