NORTERN PIN OAK
This expansive oak is in the front yard of 1218 Hartford Avenue. The large lower limbs of the tree extend out horizontally and stretch well across the sidewalk and street. The tree is on the west side of the house and provides afternoon shade, which in turn helps with the resident’s energy bills. Northern pin oaks are primarily planted as an ornamental tree, with unique aesthetic qualities especially in the fall when the leaves turn to a bright right color.
