The Mighty Oak

    The timeless, mighty oak tree is symbolic of strength and persistence.

    From a tiny acorn, this massive and long-living tree will grow. Oaks are lauded for their strong, far-reaching root systems. Their deep roots make them adaptable to droughts and heavy winds. That's why oak trees are often on top of hills, silhouetted against the horizon.

    There is an oak tree for almost every property type (aside from very small ones). Some species can grow in zone three and others can grow in the warm zone nine. 

    The acorns provide much needed food for wildlife and can be saved to be planted. In autumn, they can show off vibrant orange and red leaves. They are all-around useful and beautiful trees that add value to the land where they grow.

    Massive oak trees line a gravel road

    Perhaps the greatest feature of a mighty oak tree is its longevity. Some trees have grown to be hundreds of years old. The most iconic oak trees are in communities in southern U.S. states. Allies of massive oaks line and shade the streets, roads, and driveways from the hot southern sun.

    Oak Trees Background

    Believe it or not-- there are about 450 species of oaks! They are deciduous trees that grow tall and are excellent at providing shade. Their lobed leaves make them easy to identify. In autumn they produce acorns. Acorns can either sprout and grow into trees or serve as food for wildlife. 

    Most oak trees are native to the United States. Most thrive in average to poor soil conditions, but some can tolerate increased moisture. They are easy to maintain once established and rarely need pruned.

    Landscape Uses

    Oaks are often used in parks and on larger, recreational properties. They have few problems and can live for hundreds of years making them an ideal tree for large spaces.

    Oak trees can be planted in large gardens where they will have room to grow and spread. They are excellent for creating shade in the heat of winter and provide a source of food for many wildlife animals.

    Generally, oaks should not be planted in small yards or gardens. Their extensive root system is not ideal for containers or street-side planting. 

    Oaks can offer timeless beauty to the space they are planted in. Depending on the speciece, their autumnal colors are unbeatable and breathtaking. 

    How to Plant an Oak Tree

    Oak trees can be planted like most other trees. They will need to be fertilized every year to nourish the roots. Fortunately, they are overall low-maintenance trees.

    Here is a step-by-step planting guide for Oak Trees:

    1. Scout the best location for the species of tree you have (sun requirements, space, and soil type)
    2. Dig a hole the size of the root ball with a small mound f soil in the center of the hole
    3. Plant the roots, if there is a stem, do NOT plant the stem-- planting the stem will result in rot and lead to disease
    4. Spread out the roots around the mound so they face away from the tree
    5. Backfill the hole with soil
    6. Firm in soil, but be careful to keep the roots intact
    7. Water thoroughly to eliminate air pockets and help the tree become established
    8. Stake the tree if needed (you can use one, two, or three stakes at most)
    9. Do not prune or fertilize until the year after planting
    10. Prune any broken or crossing branches
    11. Prune so there is one main trunk, not two competing trunks

They give off red bark in their lower portions, most prevalent during winter.  Attributes of a Red Oak Tree When it comes to this tree, it is said that the leaves of this type of tree are huge compared to the other trees. The leaves resemble the shapes of an oak leaf, but they are much longer than an oak leaf. The leaves are usually twice as broad as they are tall and have more like veins, indicating that they are a different tree species.  Red Oak Tree's Growth Since the tree is evergreen, the tree will stay green year after year. The mature height of a mature tree is around 110-140 feet tall. The leaves of the tree are very durable and can withstand powerful winds that can cause actual damage to other trees. The tree's growth rate is slow but consistent. It can grow as big as 6 feet per year and up to 10 feet per year. The root systems of these trees are also quite large and very healthy. A mature tree will produce around 3000 acorns a year; out of those acorns, over 20% will grow into new trees.  Red Oak Tree's Requirements The tree is very hardy, so the sun will not harm them much. The tree has a solid shade tolerance, meaning it can grow in areas with little sunlight. Due to this, the tree will survive in environments where there are very few other trees. The tree can grow in many environments, but it is not recommended to grow in very moist and wet areas, as this will cause the roots of this type of plant to rot. The tree's roots are very healthy, so they will not be hurt if there is little water available. Red Oak Tree is very sturdy, but it also has strong roots. The roots of a tree can hold and help support over 50 times its weight, which means that the tree's root systems are pretty healthy and challenging. The roots of this tree are essential for providing nutrients to the other parts of the plant so that the roots can affect plants growing nearby. Consider the Red Oak Tree as an ancient tree. Some say that it is the most beautiful kind of tree ever, and there are many records of these trees being used for shelter and building things out of wood. If you have seen one in person, you might agree that they have great value and beauty. Consider how well a tiny seed can grow into a solid and beautiful tower of thick branches that can reach over 300 feet high in the air.

Small yellow-green flowers grow in spring before leaf growth begins. After 15 years of age, the willow oak tree will start producing acorns. The deciduous tree works in most soil types, only requiring it to be well-draining to prevent root rot. If a large tree is preferred, then planting in a location that receives full sun is required. The Tree Likes Lots of Water The tree can tolerate partial shade, but its branches will be weaker and unable to support a larger size. The tree requires regular watering during its root establishment but can tolerate drought conditions after they are set. In a typical tree, pruning is only needed to remove dead branches and to shape the tree if desired. If planted in a lower light area, regular pruning will be required to prevent upper limbs from growing straggly towards the sun. Upper branches are to be cut back to allow for more energy to build a more substantial structure. Willow oak trees are typically planted for the shade their large forms can produce.
