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.

Zone: 5 - 9
Soil pH: 5.0 - 7.0
Mature Height: 110'
Wildlife Value: Generous acorn production, eaten by wild turkey, waterfowl, white-tailed deer, squirrel.
Site Preference: Tolerates a variety of sites and pH ranges, but does best on well-drained soils along streams and rivers; on deep upland soils, especially loess.
Nut Maturity Date: October to January (varies)
Alias: Spotted Oak, Swamp Oak

Shumard oaks have arrived

My order of black cherries and Shumard oaks arrived last week. As always, they arrive quickly and in great shape. I quickly put them in individual pots upon arrival as I won’t have time for a few weeks to get them in the ground. That evening we had a good rain storm followed by several warm sunny days. These young trees loved it! Leaves are popping out all over! I will plant them on our property with the over one hundred trees we have ordered from you over the years. Thank you for quick delivery of healthy trees. I would not expect anything less!
