Growth habit

The Quercus palustris 'Green Pillar', also known as the Columnar Pin Oak, is a beautiful cultivar of the Pin Oak. The tree will maintain a narrow and compact crown even at a mature age. The crown forms a cohesive whole, making it suitable for narrower locations such as a border along a path or a small planting area.


Leaf color and shape

The Young Columnar Pin Oak, or Quercus palustris 'Green Pillar', is known for its striking leaf color and shape. The leaves are deep green in color and have a characteristic lobed shape, typical of oak trees.


Autumn coloration

The Quercus palustris 'Green Pillar' turns deep red to reddish-brown in autumn, retaining this color for most of the winter.



The Quercus palustris 'Green Pillar' thrives in nutrient-rich, moisture-retentive soil, but also tolerates wet and acidic soils well.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
