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 with plenty of room to grow.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's 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. And finally, 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: You can add a general purpose fertilizer once a year if you notice slow growth - otherwise, fertilizer isn't necessary to help the Southern Red thrive.
