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. Pick a spot that will give this tree plenty of room to grow.
Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the 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. 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 each 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
So far, so good.
My experience has been good, so far. My tree arrived intact and undamaged from the shipping process. Pretty amazing, being able to ship a 7 foot tree. I just planted the tree in March 2022, it's only April. I don't know if I will see any signs of growth later this spring and summer, but hopefully so. At least I will know it's alive.
Arrived in great packaging. Put in ground right away. Looks like it is coming out of dormancy now. Will see what happens in a month or two.
I love Fast Growing trees, as they don't trim the lower twigs up the trunk to develop proper caliper size, unlike nurseries that want to sell more of an older tree like form.
Picking out this tree was easy and it was delivered as advertised. We were happy with the healthy tree that was huge. Look forward to seeing it grow in the front yard.
Beautiful and Healthy!
The tree was over five feet tall and in excellent health! It hasn’t shown any stress over the extreme South Texas heat and seems to be coming along nicely.
