The Majestic Bur oak has a “can do” attitude unlike any other oak in existence. It can thrive in the most fertile bottomlands and survive on the craggiest hilltops. It can tolerate the coldest of winters to the hottest summers- dry or humid. From the excessively high pH chalky soils of Texas to the super acid red dirt in Georgia, Bur oak can do it. It can serve as an incredible wildlife tree thanks to the low tannin white oak acorns, or work as a majestic landscape tree that your great grandkids will also be able to enjoy.
Contrary to popular belief, Bur oaks can grow relatively fast when planted on a better than average site- and stand a great chance of producing acorns before their tenth birthday if given proper care. Our rapid mast bur oaks come from several trees scattered across the Midwest that are heavy producers of small to medium sized acorns. These genetics provide cold hardiness to USDA planting zone 3 where it gets super cold. If you are looking for bur oaks with super large acorns, slightly later drop times, and cold hardiness in zone 4 and south, you should also give our Mastadon bur oaks a try.
