Bred to require a lesser amount of room is the cathedral live oak. This tree, with its consistent height and spread and full, dense head, is ideal for areas requiring consistency, privacy and shade. When properly pruned to curb spreading, cathedral live oak provides a compromise between standard live oak and the upright habit of highrise live oak. Trees average 28 feet to 35 feet in height with a maximum spread of 18 feet to 20 feet. It can be planted within 30 feet of another cathedral live oak. These trees are found near entryways in park and commercial and luxury landscape designs.
