Quercus castaneifolia ‘Green Spire’ is a cultivar of the Chestnut-leaved oak that was raised at Hillier Nurseries in 1948. This deciduous tree stands out with a tall, broadly columnar form, showcasing an upright habit that contributes to its silhouette.

The foliage of the ‘Green Spire’ features leaves reminiscent of chestnut trees. Dark green, narrow, oval and shiny, these add depth and texture to the tree’s overall appearance. As autumn arrives, leaves present a display of rich, warm hues that enhance its ornamental value.

Known for its vertical emphasis, ‘Green Spire’ is a well-suited choice for avenue planting or restricted areas.
