A medium size tree to 35 feet, the Red Oak is a fast growing tree that has spread extensively in Gonzales County because of its rapid growth and abundant acorn production. It is now one of the most common trees in the county. Unfortunately, it is also highly susceptible to Hypoxylon canker and oat wilt. While it is a highly successful tree species with nice fall color, it should probably not be used quite so frequently.
