Wildtree Mexican Oak ™

-

The Wildtree Mexican Oak is an exciting wildlife shade tree that will thrive in the southern United States. It is a member of the red oak family that was discovered in the San Carlos Mountains of northern Mexico. As such, it has proven to be drought, heat and cold tolerant. It thrives in a broad range of soil types as long as they are well drained. It is a fast growing, partially deciduous tree that consistently produces masses of smallish acorns year after year. In zones 8-10 this stately oak will hold on to most of its leaves throughout the winter, providing year round cover. In early spring, it casts its remaining foliage, with new growth emerging bright pink. This tree is so strikingly attractive, you might consider it for your home’s landscape as well!
