Description

 Black Oak Seedlings reliable, and easy to grow.

The branches are formed into an open crown and have a high, spreading growth.

This is a deciduous tree with a long, open growth habit that produces a general spreading crown. Thickets of vigorous, fast-growing dark green leaves alternate with the creamy white, sharply pointed lobes of the leaf stalks; the catkins appear just before or with the appearance of new leaves.

Black oak seedlings don't come with much more than the qualities a good tree should have. The light brown outer bark peels off to reveal a green heart. The trees grow 80-100 ft. tall, taking 30 to 50 years to reach full size. In the fall, small catkins appear on the trees along with a large number of new leaves. Attracted by the bright orange inner bark, deer and squirrels can often be seen nibbling on it throughout the winter. Once established in its new location, this item stays with few problems except for occasional drought for many decades. Occasional damage from ice storms knocks down large quantities of ripe acorns, leaving them free for birds and other animals to eat or scatter away.

This tree's seeds fell from twigs and scattered in the wind. The first year the tiny black seeds turned into acorns, with a green fleshy cap; the second year, the cap opened to reveal a single tiny seed, covered with a dark brown shell. Each acorn is a seed-a key to the future of your black oak trees. In any year, when weather conditions are right, These Seedlings will send up one or more trunks for you to use for shelter, bring shade to your yard, or be cut down and used for ornamental purposes.

 Black Oak Seedlings tree hosts several beautiful fall color species, including the Scarlet, Northern Spy, and Autumn Blaze varieties.

The hardy deciduous tree has a light and open crown that can tolerate a wide range of conditions for success. Take care to prune in spring about once every three years, but it's best left alone otherwise. Keep this American cultivar subject to full sun for best results.

With an Acorn near you, the magic starts to happen. Black oak seedlings are the perfect way to reintroduce trees into your landscape and help grow habitat for critters ranging from baby birds, chipmunks, squirrels, and other small creatures to large mammals such as deer and elk.

The outside bark is smooth and dark brown to olive at maturity. When young, the inner bark is pale brown, becoming yellow or orange in mature trees.
