This is a spectacular and noble tree. Everyone ought to have to plant at least one oak tree in their lifetime. And this is the one to plant.

Because of its deep-rooting habit, it is one of the best oaks for the KC Metro area, tolerating drought and thriving during periods of heavy/abundant rains. Too many acorns, but you have to take the bad with the good.
