White Oak

Majestic Shade Tree


The White Oak is an extraordinary deciduous tree known for its size and strength.  It would be outstanding as the preeminent shade tree in your yard.
 
The White Oak is a magnificent native American tree that will provide a statuesque presence in your yard, as well as shade for your home and habitat for wildlife.   It’s a long-lived tree with some being documented at over 500 years old. 
 
The White Oak reaches only around 85 feet in height, but standing in its presence one has the impression of being cared for and sheltered under its massive limbs that extend far out from its trunk.  In fact, it’s not uncommon for the White Oak to be wider than it is tall. 


The branches grow in wide angles, forming an incredibly broad rounded crown.  The crown is rugged in appearance, again giving the impression of strength and stability.  
 
The only softness in this tree comes in the spring when the leaves begin for form with a soft pink tint and fuzzy down that is soft to the touch.  You’ll note a unique silvery hue that gives the tree a unique silvery appearance.  To see one in the spring morning dew is to feel one has stepped into a fairy tale. 
 
The White Oak’s 5 inch leaves turn red to purple in autumn, and 1 inch acorns tumble to the ground in October.  The acorns are a bit smaller than those of some other oaks, but are less bitter.  Native Americans used them as a food source and wildlife love them.
 
This majestic tree is one of the best known hardwoods in N. America.  Its wood is very dense and strong so used extensively for various things including furniture and even some weapons.  In fact, the USS Constitution is made of white oak. 
 
For a long-lived, strong and durable tree, the White Oak is the perfect choice.

Large acorn tree Review by Old Jim

I have an acreage that we purchased many years ago and there are several white oaks on the property. Fall is a lot of fun watching the wildlife go after the acorns. White Oak is a wonderful tree.

I bought 10 different trees & all but 1 is doing well. Nature hills does a great job of packing & shipping the trees & customer service is great to deal with.
The Great White Oak Review by Lizzy

I planted this for the birth of my first grandson. His parents liked that it was a "Mighty Oak", I love that it will be around for years and will grow with him. A beautiful tree.
A great Oak Review by Gordon

A really nice oak. The leaves are really interesting in theor shape and color. The lighter underside is very noticable when there is a breeze and the fall color is good as well.
Beautiful fall tree Review by TreeHugger

This hearty specimen is a beautiful, deep maroonish-red in the fall. Leaves are on this tree for some time after most others have dropped theirs. Not exactly fast growing but grows well in most soils and under most conditions. Makes a great shade tree.
