White Oak

Quercus alba

The White Oak is an impressive, stately tree that is well suited for large areas.  The branches extend far away from the trunk and parallel to the ground which makes it an ideal shade tree.  In spring, the leaves are light pink tinged with a silver color.  A nice display of color gives way to a beautiful silhouette with a wide crown in late autumn and over winter.  Plant this long lived tree where it has room to grow such as a large backyard or field, cemetery, park, golf course or campus.  The White Oak can live for 500+ years, becoming ever more interesting as it matures.

    What types of oak are resistant to oak wilt?

    Mar 23, 2018, 09:14

    While there is no oak which is impervious to oak wilt, the White Oak group is more resistant than the Red Oak group. This article published by the UW-Extension contains a wealth of pertinent information to oak wilt. http://learningstore.uwex.edu/Assets/pdfs/G3590.pdf

    How long will it take for this White Oak to produce nuts after planting?

    Nov 28, 2017, 14:02

    The White Oak will typically begin producing acorns in approximately 20 years, peaking in production after it is 50 years of age. Time span between significant acorn crops can be 4-10 years. Acorns will drop to the ground in September and October.

    Are any of the Oaks effected by proximity to black walnuts? Any specie more or less resistant to the phytotoxicity? I intend on planting outside of the mature walnuts canopy's drip line but they will be within 10 feet of it or so.

    And spring always for planting oaks correct?

    Thanks for your help!

    White Oak and Red Oak are the Oaks most tolerant of juglone toxicity. You should be alright to plant them within 10' of the Black Walnut's drip line. We feel that spring is the best time for planting bare root trees, as the amount of natural precipitation during the critical establishment period is usually greatest in the spring. The trees have an entire growing season to get their roots properly established before colder weather sets in; an important consideration, especially for our customers in the northern third of the United States.

The White Oak is also sometimes known as the Stave Oak, Ridge White Oak, Forked-Leaf White Oak and the Fork-Leaf Oak.

The White Oak is a classic oak tree.  This tree exhibits a large, strong form that looks great even after the leaves drop in autumn.  This oak is best planted in an area where the root zone will remain undisturbed.  Since this selection does not react to soil compaction or construction damage very well, you may consider the Red Oak for those situations.

Common uses for the White Oak:

  • Specimen tree for large spaces
  • Often planted on golf courses or in parks and cemetaries
  • Used as part of a large, long lived windbreak
  • Great wildlife value
The acorn of the White Oak is enjoyed by Wild Turkeys, Whitetail Deer, Black Bears, Blue Jays and several types of ducks and woodpeckers. Over 180 wildlife species have been known to use the White Oak acorn.
