White oak is a long-lived, slow-growing tree, reaching 60 to 100 feet in height with a spread of 50 to 90 feet in its native bottomland soil. Old specimens can be massive, growing to be several hundred years old. The White Oak produces medium to large sized acorns with a warty cap that begin their descent in mid October through November. The acorns can provide a quality, easy meal for deer and other critters. Since trunks can be six feet in diameter leave plenty of room for this tree in the landscape. The trunk flares out at the base lifting sidewalks and curbing if planted in tree lawns less than eight feet wide. The red fall color is fairly reliable year to year and is outstanding among the oaks in USDA hardiness zones 8a and colder areas. Brown leaves may be held on the tree into the early part of the winter. USDA ZONES: Zone 3, Zone 4, Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

Shipping and handling charges are calculated based on the tables below.

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree will need. 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. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, refer to the brochure included in your PlantMeGreen package.
What your plant will need:
Soil: Adapted to various soils: Clay; Sand; Loam; Acidic; Occasionally Wet; Well-Drained
Sun Exposure: Full Sun, Partial Sun, or Partial Shade
Spacing: 60-80 feet
Water: Average Water Needs; Water regularly; Do not overwater
Other: Moderate Drought Tolerant; High Salt Tolerant

These oaks thrive in a wide range of hardiness zones. Once planted, they should grow and thrive on their own with little (if any) attention needed. One of the best nut trees available for any landscape setting.
