 Thanks to the landscape trade, we’ve had literally thousands of individuals growing these oaks all over the southeast from which to choose our parent stock.  To be perfectly honest, we can’t prove that our favorites are 100% Southern live.  They might have stemmed from former crosses with other live oaks such as Texas live and/or sand live.  What we do know, is that we’ve found live oaks that drop tastier than normal acorns at a younger than normal age, with a wide variation in acorn drop time.  The earlier dropping parents begin shedding in October, and the late droppers rain beginning in December.  Both of these traits would be perfect additions for a wide-open setting, such as:  Logging decks, cabin yards, long driveways, and pastures.  You ever noticed how gobblers have an uncanny ability to find a shady spot from which to strut their stuff on unseasonably hot spring days?  Look no further than this evergreen beauty planted all by its lonesome or as a widely spaced grove.   Although live oaks can handle a variety of sites,  they  don’t tolerate super cold winters, so consider hybrid Compton oak as a substitute if your winter temps frequently dip below 25F or so.

Everything good

I ordered a variety of oaks and they arrived quickly, as requested, and were high quality stock. Definitely will buy from Nativ Nurseries again.

Quality product

As usual a quality product delivered promptly. But didn’t seem to follow the ship date I entered when ordering. Not a huge deal it just meant the trees had to hang out for 4-5 days until I could get them in the ground. Otherwise 5 stars.

Thanks for the honest review. You clicked Monday,Jan 10, as the shipping date, and typed in the notes box that they needed to arrive by Tuesday the 11th. We made the judgement call to go ahead and ship the Thursday prior (we don't ship Fridays) to make sure they'd arrive in time, instead of late. Being in a dormant state they can keep for at least a couple of weeks if kept cool. Sorry for the confusion, and best of luck with your new trees! Dudley

My Rapid Mast Live Oak Seedlings Order

I was really impressed with how full the vast majority of the root balls were (had one or two that weren't as big as the others); in past years, I've had numerous seedlings that had a "less than full" root ball. I tried the "heeling in" planting method rather than my normal planting the seedlings in pots and placing them in my tree nursery, where they get regularly watered, but they're exposed to direct sunlight; later on down the road, I'll transfer them to pots. Thank you Nativ Nurseries!
