Escarpment Oak
ESCARPMENT OAK
Quercus fusiformis

Escarpment Oak is a large spreading tree that is nearly identical in appearance to Southern Live Oak (Quercus virginiana), but is considered much hardier. Although Escarpment Oak is considered one of the most drought-efficient oak trees, it is not appropriate for all locations in the Southwest; it is susceptible to live oak wilt and live oak decline under extremely stressful drought conditions.
