Bur Oak- Large Masculine Tree

The bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa) is a large, long-lived tree that is native to North America. It is a member of the white oak group, which is characterized by its lobed leaves and acorns that ripen in a single year. The bur oak is known for its massive size, strong trunk, and thick, corky bark. It is a popular choice for landscaping because it is tolerant of a variety of climate and soil conditions, and it is relatively low-maintenance.

The bur oak is a large masculine tree, with a thick trunk and stout branches. It can grow up to 100 feet tall and 80 feet wide. The leaves of the bur oak are dark green on top and pale green on the bottom. They are lobed and have a wavy margin. The acorns of the bur oak are large and enclosed in a spiky cap.

The bur oak is a valuable tree for both wildlife and humans. It provides food and shelter for a variety of animals, including birds, squirrels, and raccoons. The wood of the bur oak is strong and durable, and it is used for a variety of purposes, including furniture, flooring, and tool handles.

Here are some tips for incorporating bur oaks into your landscape:

  • Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil.
  • Space the trees 50-80 feet apart, depending on the desired mature size.
  • Water the trees regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize the trees in the spring and fall with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Prune the trees lightly in the late winter to remove any dead or diseased branches.

Enjoy the beauty and strength of the bur oak!

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
