Bur Oak

Grow Your Own Mighty Oak!


The Bur Oak (Quercus macrocarpa) makes an outstanding ornamental tree and is one of the most tolerant white oaks. It is sometimes spelled Burr Oak and is also called Mossycup Oak.


A long lived tree the Bur Oak typically lives between 200-300 years and its mature height is up to 100 feet.


A beautiful, stately tree that is tolerant of a variety of soil and water conditions. It also adapts well to urban settings. It can be grown from Alaska to Texas, further proof of its mighty strength.


From spring to summer the Bur Oak flaunts its distinctive, lobed, shiny, deep green leaves. Shortly after the arrival of the leaves your oak will flower. No traditional flower would do for the oak though. Instead it will be dripping with yellow-green catkins.


The elegant, almost whimsical flowers are where the acorns will originate.


The acorns of the Bur Oak are the largest of all North American oaks. They are very important to wildlife as a food source. Squirrels, some birds and even some ducks rely on the acorns for food.


A beautiful, rugged tree that will bring wildlife to your yard and last for many generations, the Bur Oak is a great choice.


* Long Lived
* Drought tolerant
* Very adaptable

Tough tree Review by Plains guy

The Bur Oak can take the weather our great plains can throw at it. It is very tolerant of the elements.
Acorns Review by Corny

The burr oak was the largest tree on my Grandfathers farm. I can still remember the huge acorns. Mine is still too young to produce acorns.
Bur Oaks are Great Review by Mark from Minnesota
Rating
I grew up in a wooded area southwest of Minneapolis. There were many Bur Oaks growing in the meadows and woods, and they were always my favorite tree. They have a gnarled bark quality that differs from the smoother White and Pin Oaks. The Bur Oak is a tree for those looking for a distinctive, rugged quality in a tree. The leaves turn a beautiful golden in autumn.

I planted a Bur Oak in my side yard 19 years ago and it is beautiful now. Plant your tree in open space where it can grow to size and it will do well. Once a catipillar worm nest was found in my tree and remove quickly has been the only problem. The tree is healthy and does this all by itself as far as growing and looking good.
