Bur Oak

-

Bur oak produce a large acorn in a heavy cap covered in “burs” that resembles a small bird’s nest. Dropping in October to November, their hefty size prevents smaller animals from eating them, and therefore they may persist on the ground into early winter and be available for consumption by deer after other more preferred, earlier ripening food is no longer available. Slowly forming a large tree, it is adaptable to both acidic and alkaline soil conditions provided the site is well-drained. This species is fairly drought tolerant after establishment.
