A customer once asked us, “If you had to choose one and only one species of oak to plant at your deer camp or property, which one would it be?” Wow, a question like that is very important. Let’s see… well…it must provide high quality timber and plenty of mast. It also must be a red oak because biologists recommend at least 60% of oaks on a property be from the red oak section. Most importantly it must provide a wide window of acorn drop time like no other oak can provide. That leaves us no choice but to say Shumard oaks from Mossy Oak’s Nativ Nursery!
Why our Shumards? Because we collect seed from different parent trees that provide a mast source encompassing almost half of the calendar year (mid Oct- Feb) from one species of oak! Shumards vary in their expressed traits (especially with timing of acorn drop) more so than any red oaks we have encountered, and also can be successfully established in a wide range of zones and sites.
Trees came in great shape and healthy. I have planted several types of trees from. Native in the past and the all do extraordinary well 👍 Fast growers and from excellent stock
They came in pretty good shape. A few casualties but not a deal breaker. Put them in pots and got them in my garage with a small irrigation system. Over all they seem happy. We shall see!
I ordered more Shumard Oaks because I’m so impressed with their growth. My first order and planting was 12-23-22 and as of June 1 I have several white and shumard oaks 4” above the tree tubes. These tree grow really fast and are healthy due to following Dudley’s YouTube videos using tree tubes and fertilizer. I’m very impressed with these tree and will be ordering more this fall for my property.
Great looking trees
They came looking vey healthy and with little leaves on them. I hope they make it through the cold spring we are experiencing.
