The Cypress Oak (also known as the Upright English Oak, Columnar Oak, or Pyramid Oak) is a slow-growing, deciduous oak tree with a slender, narrow profile and a short trunk. It is a cultivar of the English Oak family and is native to Europe and parts of the Middle East. It typically grows to a height of 12 to 18 meters and can live for several centuries or more.
The dark green leaves of the Cypress Oak turn brown or yellow in the autumn and sometimes remain on the tree for several months before they fall in winter. The tree flowers each spring and bears acorns by late summer that mature on the tree throughout the winter.
