My tree was planted at about 6 feet last year. It kept the dried leaves until 2 weeks ago. It is very late to leaf out, only now are the buds starting to swell, everything else in my garden is green already, except for the beech.
Pretty pretty tree!

Planted a sapling in 1988 this tree is now about 35' and shades the entire front yard. The acorns drop and babies are everywhere. I will be potting them in the next week for a benefit, and expect they will do fine with a good fertilizer. Its a grand tree not yet full grown over rhododendrons, azaleas and other shade lovers.

There is a beautiful specimen of this tree in front of Red Oak Elementary school in Oak Park, California. Has anyone any additional info on this plant in Southern California? I am considering planting one in my front yard. This tree appears to be full grown at about 35' tall, with a nicely rounded shape and beautiful red fall foliage.
