Quercus robur fastigiata 'Koster'
- Origin – Britain.
- Container grown.
- Otherwise known Cypress Oak
A little known form of oak tree that has all the same characteristics as Robur, the Cypress Oak is such a wonderful tree for wildlife, that for restricted areas this clone makes it possible to plant one. With ascending branches that do not droop this creates a narrow columnar shape, The trunk usually branches low down and the bark is a dark grey, the bunt lobed leaves emerge reddish-brown in the spring. It thrives best in more rural environments where soil volumes are greater to support its growth. Mature height: 15-20m Special interest: Summer & autumn interest Tree uses: Woodland, Avenue, Park, Urban, Garden, Restricted space Awards: RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit)
Our trees have a 1.5-2m clear stem which continues into a well branched crown, grown here in the nursery on well-spaced lines to avoid any competition and with a bamboo cane up one side to ensure the tree is straight and is well supported.
When planting this tree be sure that the soil is moist, it will tolerate most soil types including sand, loam, clay and chalk. Likes full sun to partial shade.
