Oak - NuttallQuercus nuttallii
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6-9
The Nuttall oak is a strong and adaptable oak that provides summer shade and nice fall foliage. The Nuttall is also an important species for wildlife management due to its high production of acorns. The acorns are oblong, brown, ¾ to 1½ inches long and covered by a turbinate (bumpy) cap. A Nuttall Oak tree must be approximately 20 years old before producing acorns. It has a medium growth-rate and reaches a height of 60-80 feet with a canopy of 35-50 feet. In the fall, the leaves turn from yellow to orange to red. This species is one of the most well-adapted oaks for general landscape use. It grows quickly, develops a good branching structure, tolerates wet soil as well as moderate drought, and has very few issues with insects and disease. All of which make the Nuttall oak a great choice for urban and suburban spaces. It is hardy in USDA Zones 6-9.
USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

How to Plant
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.
