Garry Oak
Quercus garryana


An iconic tree of the Pacific Northwest, one that’s valuable enough to have its own ecosystem named after it. While not appropriate for some yards due to their mature size, which over time may reach 20m x 20m, those with space and the inclination to create their own sanctuary (Garry Oak ecosystems are threatened in the wild) could use this tree as an anchor for a native habit garden replacing the lawn. Since they prefer warm and dry conditions (think of the Gulf Islands) they may grow more slowly and to smaller sizes in our cooler and wetter conditions…unless climate change and longer drought periods leave them feeling right at home here.
