How To Care

Shumard Oak Trees are easy to grow and extremely adaptable. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing and hot temperatures you can plant your Oak tree almost any time of the year.

This Oak thrives in full sun and is adaptable to any soil, even tolerating wet areas. These trees are drought tolerant once established. Water deeply twice weekly for the first 3 months after planting. This helps the roots establish properly. Add a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch when planting to help keep the soil moist. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the risk of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer. Oaks do not generally require pruning, but, if needed, prune when they are dormant in winter or early spring to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches, or to maintain shape. This Oak is pollution and salt tolerant and rarely have issues with insects or disease.

Convenient, Great Packaging, Fast processing. Nice healthy tree.

The price was a little high for a 5 gallon tree. I could have gotten a 15 gallon tree over 9' high locally for 5 dollars less. With that said, it was convenient that the tree came to my door. It was received in good shape and is doing very well where I planted it. It was just starting to come out of dormancy when it appeared with only a few new leaves. Now a week later it is covered in new growth.
