Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Beacon Swamp in a spot in your yard that receives at least 4 hours of direct sunlight each day. And pick a spot that will give this tree plenty of room to grow.
From there, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your tree's root ball. After you plant the tree, tamp down the soil until it is firm. Thoroughly water the base of the tree so that water penetrates the roots, and spread a good amount of mulch around the base of the tree to retain moisture.
2. Watering: Water the tree to keep the ground moist. Watering deeply, once a week, should be enough to help your young tree establish roots. Once your tree matures, you only need to water in the dry seasons where you get less than 1 inch of rainfall per month.
3. Fertilizing and Pruning: Fertilizing once a year and occasional pruning to thin overcrowded branches is ideal for healthiest growth.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos

Ordering and shipping was fast and easy. My 6-7' beacon swamp white oak was delivered in good shape. Planted in May, its leaves dropped in June as summer kicked into gear, and it finally showed new growth in the past week or two in late July. Fingers crossed the tree strengthens and becomes a nice addition to my property. The columnar shape was ideal, as my property is not appropriate for a larger oak variety.
I purchased one 7 foot Quercus bicolor very early in the spring. I planted it quickly. The dog woods I also purchased showed early growth. Nothing from the oak............I waited......and waited...and it finally showed growth in late may. It is in a choice location in terms of partial sun only and now looks happy. Foliage is still "gappy" in places but its just starting to resemble the cylindrical foliage typical of the species and shown in the picture on the website. The image I shared was taken 2 weeks ago and it has progressed since then. This is a very tough tree once established and should outlive all of us by 100+ years.
So Far So Good Fits the spot perfect!
Arrived beautiful. I’m amazed it was leafed out when it arrived bare root. It’s been about 3 weeks old and still looks great. As far as transplant shock I think the tree is in the clear but I’ll keep after it. Fertilizing with liquid fish fertilizer every week ’til it gets too hot. One question: What are the parents of this tree? Just Quercus bicolor or crossed with Q. robur or something else?
Easy way to order product and delivery to my door step. Great service
