This native North American deciduous tree is one of the most well-adapted oaks for general landscape use, with plentiful acorns that attract wildlife. 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. New trees can produce fruit in 20+ years depending on care and climate. The success of new trees is heavily dependent on the care received during and after planting.

Pruning Oaks require minimal pruning. In early years, light pruning may be used to establish a strong central leader structure.
Fertilization Do not fertilize at planting. Once the trees are established, fertilize in early spring (Mar-April) as growth begins. Do not fertilize in the fall, which could promote late season tender growth that can be damaged by early frosts.
Watering Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.

At Chestnut Hill Outdoors, we’ve been shipping mail order trees for over 30 years. We’re experts at delivering healthy trees to your doorstep. All of our trees are container grown in root-enhancing pots, ensuring healthy root systems and much better success upon planting. 

In Spring we ship bare-root, dormant trees. All plants are dipped in a root gel before shipping and wrapped in plastic to retain moisture.

Spring: All trees are shipped bare-root.
Fall: All trees are shipped in containers.

Size shipped: 8 – 24 inches
