Live Oak Tree

Pam's Picks
This majestic Oak is the one you see at famed southern plantations, draped in Spanish moss under which ladies drank mint juleps and fanned themselves through summer. It is undeniably stately and carries a broad canopy of small green leaves that truly evokes an era gone by. The bark has incredible texture that only adds to the architectural glory this tree presents, and small acorns attract a multitude of wildlife.

Live Oak Tree

Fastest Growing Oak!


Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

Few trees are as strong and awe-inspiring as the Live Oak.

A large, spreading tree with reclining branches, it thrives in rich, coastal soils and along the banks of streams and rivers.

Often covered in Spanish Moss, the tree evokes images of southern weddings and historical small towns. With the moss draping over its long branches, the Live Oak has one of the most distinctive appearances of any tree.

Its impressive branches wind out toward the sky, causing speckled light to filter to the ground beneath it.

The strength of the tree's wood is legendary. It was a common component of early American ships, specifically used to make hulls because of its curved nature and incredible tensile strength. The wood is a soothing yellow-brown in color.

Acorns, a by-product of the tree, are a sweet attraction to a variety of birds and animals including ducks, deer and squirrels.

Because of its broad, sweeping branches, ensure there is ample room when planting to accommodate this fast growing beauty.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Yes... Your Live Oak Tree can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Live Oak Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Live Oak Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Live Oak Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Live Oak Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

When planting a live oak, is it best to plant a smaller tree ( 3" in diameter) as opposed to a larger (6" in diameter) tree? I was told the larger ones take 3 to 5 years to develop their root system and therefore higher chance of losing tree.
