Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Red Oak in a spot in your yard that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. And pick a spot that will give this tree plenty of room to grow. Avoid places near power lines or buildings. You'll want to give this tree at least 50' of space.

Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the 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. 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: If you notice that your tree is not growing 2 feet every year, you can add a general-purpose fertilizer once a year.
