Quite a beautiful tree, fire resistant, wildlife supporting, drought tollerant and highly Sudden Oak Death resistant. Survives and thives well if planted in a new lawn. Beautiful foliage, and form as age sets in. Fast growing when watered regularly till established. Great shade tree that attracts birds.
