White Oak

The White Oak is an extraordinary wildlife tree well-known for its size and strength. The leaves of these Oak are dark green to slightly blue-green in summer, brown and wine-red to orange-red in the fall. The fall foliage is showy. Oaks are wind pollinated. Acorns are produced generally when the trees are between 50-100 years old. New spring leaves emerge with a soft pink tint and fuzzy down that is soft to the touch. They grow to large, leathery leaves that are deeply lobed and smooth without bristle tips. Summer leaves cast delicious shade for epic picnics and entertainment areas. This investment tree boosts the value of your property. The acorns are one of the best sources of food for wildlife and are gathered, hoarded and eaten by birds, hoofed browsers and rodents. Leaf buds also are eaten by several bird species, and all parts of the tree are a favorite food for deer.
