The bur oak has a unique rough appearance. The bark gets tough and severely furrowed over time. The leaves are deeply lobed and irregularly lobed, with corky wings on the twigs. It has a hairy, fringed crown on its acorns. It provides deep shade to people who are shaded by its branches. The bur oak is a tough tree that can withstand pollution and heat stress.
