With all due respect for the folks who drew the range map of Bur Oak, we knew better. Most of our seed comes from sources within a few minutes’ drive from our nursery here in Mississippi (where they aren’t supposed to occur naturally, but do).
As a result, our bur oaks have adapted to a longer growing season, giving them a little more time to make up for their reputation of being a slow grower. Also, our bur oaks take on more of a timber form in comparison to western and far northern strains. Due to their scarcity down here, and competition from deer and squirrels, we are in short supply of these seedlings, so get ‘em while they're hot.
Although acorn size varies from large to huge from year to year, the critters don’t seem to mind. These trees will grow on an extremely wide range of site types; just don’t plant one near a parking area unless your car insurance covers bur oak damage. Cheers to a unique oak that produces gargantuan, tasty acorns, and tolerates a wide range of sites from acid to alkaline, and upland to bottomland.

Acorns attract deer, squirrel, mice, cottontail rabbits, and wood ducks (foliage is also good browse for deer).
Found on both low, rich, moist soils of bottomlands and on limestone or calcareous clay in uplands. Very adaptable oak.
