Help me choose: Oak Trees
I have a large yard that I would like to add some more trees to. The trees on the top of my list are Northern Red Oak, Shumard Oak, Burr Oak, Chinkapin Oak (all native to OK) or Nuttal Oak or Pin Oak (not native to OK). My soil is classified as a silt loam, but most would consider it clay. It is one of those soils that doesn't have water standing, but seems to be either wet or dry with nothing in between. Soil is slightly acidic. My criteria are fast healthy growth (1) and good fall color (2). What is your preference and will any of these not work well in my soil.
