This gem was the first hybrid red oak we encountered. Since then we’ve found four more. All three parent trees produce vast quantities of squirrel cheese (acorns) every year. Ponder the genetic possibilities from this match made in heaven when combining the timber quality, form, and fast growth of a cherrybark, with the timely and abundant acorn crop from the site plastic water oak. The seedlings from all of our parent trees vary quite a bit making each and every one of them unique.
