Scientific Name: Quercus frainetto ‘Schmidt’
Nativity: Cultivated in Oregon
Introduced by the J. Frank Schmidt Nursery in Oregon in 1987, the Forest Green Oak is a cultivar of the Hungarian oak. The Hungarian oak is very sensitive to lime in the soil. This is why, contrary to its name, the Hungarian oak actually does not appear much in the lime-saturated soils of Hungary. Instead, it is very common in the Balkans.
DBH: 1.8 inches
