Quercus macrocarpa, known as the Bur Oak, is a robust and long-lived tree, well-suited for various landscapes. It is particularly hardy, thriving in cold hardiness zones 3 through 8. This range of adaptability makes it a popular choice for many regions, especially those with variable climates.

The Bur Oak prefers deep, rich, and well-drained soil, but it showcases a remarkable adaptability to different soil types. It can grow in both moist and dry soils, though it performs best in locations where the soil is not prone to waterlogging. This adaptability extends to its pH tolerance, as the Bur Oak can thrive in both acidic and alkaline soils.

In terms of sunlight, the Bur Oak requires full sun for optimal growth. This exposure ensures healthy development and maximizes its impressive canopy spread. It's important to consider its mature size when planting, as this species can become quite large, providing extensive shade and a strong visual presence in the landscape.

Apart from its ornamental value, the Bur Oak is also valued for its resilience. It is resistant to many common tree diseases and pests, making it a low-maintenance choice for both urban and rural settings. Its majestic stature and adaptability make it a timeless addition to parks, large gardens, and open landscapes.

The seedling oaks available for this season are from locally collected acorns. They're small but with some healthy root mass.
