Everything about: Oak, sessile

Sessile Oak, Durmast Oak - Quercus petraea, Quercus sessiliflora (latin)

Area of origin : Europe.
Adult Dimensions : Height up to 40 m (131'), width up to 25 m (82').
Foliage : Deciduous.
Soil Type : Avoid soil that is too poor, too wet or too dry. It can cope with very dry summers better than the Pedunculate Oak.
Hardiness : Hardy to -28°C.
Exposure : Full sun.

Properties and uses:
Its growth slower than the pendunculate oak, this big and beautiful tree is one of the essential trees of the French forests. Places such as Tronçay, Bercé, Chambord have magnificent examples of great age. Its wood is much sought after for its engineering qualities and for its colour, this explains one reason why it is so important in forestry. It is also planted widely in parks and gardens alone or in rows. The acorns grow directly on the branches.
