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.
I left a review a couple weeks ago regarding my shumard oaks I received and left a great review but somehow accidentally click on 1 star when it should have been 5 stars. Dudley and his staff have always gone overboard to take care of me and my orders and send the best plants in the business. 5 stars!!!
Shumard Oak purchase
I've ordered oak trees from Nativ Nurseries many times. My recent order of Shumard oaks arrived in a very timely manner and in excellent condition. I've always enjoyed planting the trees ordered from Nativ Nurseries.
Dudley and the rest of the Nativ Nursery staff are the best in the business. Highly recommend.
Thanks for getting your plants from us Terry! You've been ordering trees from us for years! Next time you can give us five stars instead of one star when you are happy with your order and results haha. Dudley
It’s difficult to say much about the Shumard Oaks other than the seedlings I received certainly were beautiful and healthy. I check on them each day and they seem to enjoy the fresh sunshine and breezes across Windy Ridge!!! I’m sure they will live up to their expectations. Looking at the "Rating", I hope it is a 5-star because that's what they deserve.
So far so good.
I ordered late in spring, so they came fully leafed out. Very healthy looking and transplanted without any issue. They came much larger and healthier than other nurseries I’ve ordered from.
