Pin Oak can grow in damp or dry locations, but prefers soil that is slightly acidic. Its leaves turn a beautiful red colour in fall, similar to red oak. The name “pin oak” is possibly due to the many small, slender twigs, but may also be from the historical use of the hard wood for pins in wooden building construction.
