The cut-leaf form of the Japanese emperor oak makes a unusual specimen for the garden.  The foliage is lobed to near the midrib for almost a ferny texture.  The tree grows to about 20′ tall and is narrowly upright.  Emperor oak is easy to grow in full sun to light shade.

The cutleaf emperor oak has a narrow habit.
