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.

Shade tree

Tree arrived well packed and in excellent condition. Got planted in mid fall season. Consequently, I will not be able to see growth until spring. However, I have previous experience with the Shumard Oak and can testify to it’s rapid growth and ability to do well in most all conditions.

Came in strong, but is struggling.

I think it will make it. It has new buds on the stems to replace the dead leaves. I just hope they sprout before the leaves turn.



It sounds like your tree arrived a bit stressed but is recovering. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any concerns as we go into Winter!
