Quercus virginiana ‘Qvtia’

The Highrise Live Oak is an evergreen and grows to a mature size of 30 – 40 feet tall. This canopy tree has an upright, compact growth habit with a dense foliage canopy.

Highrise is one of the industry’s first patented clonal live oaks. Genetically identical in all characteristics for long-term uniformity and consistency, Highrise is quickly becoming the tree of choice where restricted growing areas are of concern. Tree plantings along boulevards, parking lots and planters will be forever enhanced.
