This slow-growing deciduous oak is the common spreading shade tree of the Great Plains. A highly variable tree, it tolerates a wide range of conditions. The acorns caps are fringed. Two trees grow about 25 yards from the intersection of Campus Drive East and Galvez Street, along the path to Frost Amphitheater.
