Orders are for Fall Season
Fall Season our trees are not yet dormant. As such, we ship the plants in containers.
Fall shipping season will be coming to an end in mid November. Last day to place a Fall order will be November 11th 2021
We do not recommend fall plantings for USDA plant zone 5.
If you are planting in USDA Zone 6 or 7 for this fall season your window for a successful acclimation from our warm plant zone of 8b in Florida to zone 6. We recommend a Spring order or planting, for zone 6 & 7 this late in the planting season.
Due to high demand of our trees an order placed today will not ship out until a few weeks.
Ideally it would be best to plant young trees coming from Florida in late September for plant zones 6 and in October for plant zones 7.
You will want to protect your young trees from any frosts and freezes or delay shipping to our spring bareroot/dormant season.
Fall orders are shipped by USDA Plant zones.
Plant Zones 6: late September
Plant Zones 7-8: October–November

Swamp White Oak is a large, relatively moderate growing tree. It has large leaves with rounded lobes, and a scaling bark. Its large acorns are favored by deer and wildlife because of the low (bitter tasting) tannin content. Begins to bear in 20-30 yrs and with crops produced every 3-5 years in October-November. They will produce an average of 120 cleaned acorns per pound. Grows best in richer upland soils throughout the eastern U.S. Cold hardy to USDA plant zones 4-8.
