Live Oaks are large, strong, and stately evergreens that have become a staple of the American South. This fast-growing oak can reach a height of 40-80 feet with a spread between 60-100 feet. With its height and spread, live oaks make for great shade trees. While the Live Oak is very adaptable, it does require a large area for its spreading trunk to be accommodated. With enough room to grow, however, Live Oaks give one's yard a sense of establishment and history. The wood of the Live Oak is hard, tough, and strong, and the tree also produces sweet, edible acorns. It is hardy to about 5 degrees (Zones 7-10). Live Oaks can survive for centuries and planting one is a small task that can leave a large gift for future generations. USDA ZONES:Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Plant oaks in an area where they have plenty of room to grow to their full size. Once established, oaks need very little maintenance. Since they are drought tolerant, they rarely need extra watering. They also rarely need pruning. If there are dead limbs, however, prune in winter.

Live Oak tree got replaced

Truly happy I got the Live Oak tree replaced after I received one that was withering and dying. The Crabapple that came with it came in good conditions. Don’t know what would have happened to it, but happy I got another one in great condition. I have planted it and has taken on. Growing and has established itself.

Healthy tree

After 2 weeks the live oak is doing fine. It was actually 2-3 ft. bigger that specifications (no complains), at least 7 ft. high. It came fast and well packed, a few small branches broke during shipping, nothing serious that could affect the health of the tree I think . Just on time for the rainy season, the transplant was a success.

Great tree for cheap!

This tree was WAAAAYYY bigger than I expected! Great price and I like that it's not bare root, and transplants easier!

Nice trees

I purchased 6 oaks for my property almost a month ago. They were packaged well and nicely pruned. Two of the six have completely browned out, no green at all. I am following PMG advice to see if they can be revived.
