Quercus palustris ‘Green Pillar’ is a stunning cultivar of Quercus palustris and is known for its tall and slender shape. It’s a deciduous tree that was found in a group of Quercus palustrus ‘Crownright’by Princeton Nurseries, USA in 1994. In USA the ‘Green Pillar’ is known as Pringreen.

The ‘Green Pillar’ is highly sought after for its unique growth habit. It is essentially the fastigiate version of Quercus palustris. This tree maintains its narrow form, even when it matures, making it perfect for planting in streets or for projects with limited space.

The foliage of the ‘Green Pillar’ is one of its most captivating features. The leaves are deeply lobed, dark green and shiny throughout summer. In autumn, they transition into stunning scarlets and deep reds, creating a stunning display of colours. Leaves will turn crispy and withered and the tree will hold on to these throughout winter.

Overall, Quercus palustris ‘Green Pillar’ is an excellent choice for those seeing a tall and slender tree. Its narrow profile makes it an ideal choice for projects with compact spaces.
