Overcup Oak Tree

The overcup oak tree (Quercus lyrata) is a large, deciduous tree native to the eastern United States. It is a member of the white oak group and is known for its large, cup-shaped acorns.

Overcup oak trees typically grow to be 60-80 feet tall and wide. They have a rounded crown and spreading branches. The leaves are dark green and have a leathery texture. The acorns are 1-2 inches long and are almost completely enclosed by the cup.

Overcup oak trees are tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions, including wet and poorly drained soils. They are also tolerant of drought and heat. Overcup oak trees are a good choice for urban and suburban areas, as they are tolerant of air pollution.

Overcup oak trees provide a number of benefits to the environment. They provide food and habitat for wildlife, including birds, squirrels, and raccoons. Overcup oak trees also help to improve air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.

Here are some tips for growing overcup oak trees:

  • Plant overcup oak trees in full sun or partial shade.
  • Amend the soil with compost or manure before planting.
  • Water overcup oak trees regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize overcup oak trees once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Prune overcup oak trees in the late winter or early spring to remove dead or diseased branches and to maintain the desired shape.

Overcup oak trees are a beautiful and versatile tree that is a great addition to any landscape. They are also a good choice for environmental benefits.

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.
