White Oak (Quercus alba)

If we took a nationwide poll of deer enthusiasts and asked which oak has provided more successful hunts than any other, white oak would undoubtedly be on the top of the list. Found from the Gulf Coast all the way up and into Canada on a variety of site types, the true white oak is known for its timber quality and wildlife value. In our neck of the woods, the medium to large sized, fairly low tannin acorns begin their descent in mid October and can provide a quality, easy meal for deer and other critters through November on good years. 

We have spent a great deal of time and effort on this species to provide the public with seedlings from parent trees that exhibit traits land managers and our target quarry prefer. White oak trees and their acorns are extremely variable in quality, and we go the extra mile to provide seedlings from about twenty parent trees (out of more than we care to count) in hopes of passing on genetics that wildlife enthusiasts prefer. Any moderate to well drained upland or bottomland soil with an acid to neutral pH (our parent trees soil’s range from 4.8-7.0) should be a welcome home to our white oaks.

Great quality stock

All of the trees I ordered came healthy and alive. The white oak’s leaves were a vibrant red color by the time I received them. You can tell these will be beautiful additions to the farm. All of the stock I have ordered from Nativ nurseries came with a healthy root ball from what appears to be a plug. Which turns out makes planting them so much easier than a big loose rootball like the trees from other nurseries. I have planted over 100 trees this year from various different nurseries both hard and soft mass producers. I actually transplanted these to keep in my greenhouse over the winter. I have tried doing the same with bare root yearlings and it’s usually pretty worrisome to stuff the bare roots into a container. With these trees they are super easy to handle and work with because of the plug like root system. I am 100% going to be a repeat customer. If you’ve never ordered from here do not hesitate. They mail out on the day you pick. They come I think it was 2nd day shipping and they don’t use fedex thank God.
