Willow Oak Tree is a Wildlife Attracting Acorn Producer
Many small animals such as squirrels, deer, and birds are happy to see this tree since it produces many acorns for them to eat. The leaves of the tree turn different colors depending on which season it is. During the summer the leaves are light and dark green, and during the autumn the leaves are yellow or a russet red. The willow oak tree can grow from a low height of forty feet to as high as sixty feet. Once the willow oak tree has reached its full growth, the width of the tree can be from thirty to forty feet around. The tree grows much better if it is placed where the sun can shine on it entirely. The tree grows well in a variety of soils from the acid soil, dry soil, moist soil, sandy soil, wet soil and clay soil. The tree likes acid soil and full sun the best but does well in other types of soil and weather conditions.
