Nuttall oak is a red oak similar to Shumard Oak, but this one can tolerate wetter conditions. It naturally grows in the upper terraces of floodplains where its root system can be underwater periodically, but it also does fine in drier sites when established. Seeds tend to be much larger than Shumard Oak, and they also drop later, sometimes into November. Of the deciduous red oaks, this one also tends to hold onto its leaves longer, often into December. This one does tend to be slightly pickier about soil conditions, disliking alkaline conditions and doing best in neutral to acidic pH.

“Over the last four decades, I have become increasingly frustrated with the lack of quality wildlife plant materials, service and support for landowners and managers. I am proud to be associated with a truly full-service company as WildTree. Now you will have a one-stop-shopping resource for trees, shrubs and seeds that really work for YOUR area!”

“Frankly, I have been disappointed in the lack of research and development by many of the companies that offer plants for wildlife! For many, “research” means scouring the earth for new plants you never heard of, and there is no research or testing as to the effectiveness. Serving the landowner and manager is not just marketing, it is about delivering on a promise; and, providing support to assure success.”
