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.

    Typically after 20 years a tree will bear fruit

    How are the roots managed during shipping? Are they in soil or bare? If I order multiple trees are they individual packaged or all bunched together?

    The bare roots of all trees are dipped prior to packaging. Similar varieties are bundled together and labeled. The seedlings are then put into a sturdy box which is lined with a plastic liner, and the roots are covered with a moistened moss before the liner is closed and the box is shipped. Thanks, CRN

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.
