Shin Oaks common in The Hill
Liberty Hill, Texas, is located on what was once known as the Shin Oak Ridge for the prominence of Shin Oak trees that grow here.
The Vasey Shin Oak, which is prominent in the Liberty Hill area, is drought tolerant and grows individually or in clumps in semi-arid grassland on limestone or igneous soils. It has semi-evergreen, glossy lobed leaves and acorns up to 0.9 inches, and the bark is lighter in color than a Live Oak. When the tree grows individually, it generally does not grow taller than 30 feet. In Liberty Hill, it is more common to see the Shin Oak growing as a large shrub in thickets. The Shin Oak is lightly grazed by cattle, sheep, goats and white-tailed deer. In fact, the thickets provide escape and thermal cover for deer.
