Description

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.

How to Plant
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.
Care Guide

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.
