Chinkapin Oak, medium to large shade tree (50-90' tall and 20-40' wide). Likes full sun and well-drained soil. Would be good to shade from the west, especially the master bedroom/garage area. Moderate to fast growing.
The Carrotwood is an ideal evergreen solution in Houston, as it takes well to clay-type soils and high moisture environments. The Carrotwood is a great alternative to the common Oaks seen throughout Houston
