An old reliable member of the red oak group that produces reliable mast, it also grows and matures rather fast compared with most other oaks. Tolerant of a variety of soil conditions as long as it doesn’t stay wet too long, it is a great choice for deer and turkey plots. Full sun to part-day sun suit it well, though brightest conditions will result in heavier acorn crops.

“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.”
