Quercus robur Fastigiata is a compact, narrow crowned variety of our native oak, perfect for restricted spaces.
This pretty tree has a deeply lobed, glossy green leaf which is characteristic of its parent; the foliage turns golden brown in the autumn and will remain on the tree throughout the winter period in less exposed conditions.
It is adorned with acorns which appear in the autumn time and are a welcome addition for wildlife. Quercus robur Fastigiata is a fiercely upright variety of oak, forming a tightly regular and narrow crown. Like its parent it will tolerate most soils, but is particularly tolerant of heavy clay.
Being related to the native oak, although it is a great choice for planting in restricted areas, it does best in semi-rural areas where there is the potential to support its medium to large mature stature.
The Cypress Oak is a fantastic choice for large gardens and parkland and can offer regimented architectural uniformity to avenue planting without forming over powering specimens. Offering the wide array of ecological benefits of its parent, this tree is a great tree for supporting wildlife, without the huge need for the space that the common oak requires.
