The Red Oak is a beautiful fairly fast-growing deciduous tree with an open spreading crown. The trunk of Quercus rubra has a silver-grey bark and broad green leaves turning to a spectacular red in autumn. Like most oaks, the flower are catkins growing into large acorns much loved by children, fairies and of course wildlife. Valued for its deep root system which makes it useful for urban plantings. The American Red Oak tree grows best in moist, fertile well-drained soil, clay, loam and sand in the sun or partial shade. Fully hardy, the oak requires lime-free, acid-to-neutral soil.

The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
