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.
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.

Southern Red Oaks
We have planted two Southern Red Oaks, purchased from Fast Growing Trees. The first, planted three years ago, is growing very well, now standing about 12 ft. tall with a nice shape. This tree, planted in the spring, took a year to get established, then began growing rapidly. The second tree was planted this fall. I am hopeful that the fall planting will allow it to establish itself quicker when the growing season begins. Jesse Snowden Marshall, Texas
Southern red oak
We had good luck with trees, just have to keep deer away.
My new baby red oak tree !
Every aspect was fine! Fine! Fine!
So far so good
Excellent. The root container was a bit banged up by the shipper; we received them on a Saturday afternoon and planted them when it cooled down in the evening. Trees are healthy and holding steady and the new growth that was already on the tree is opening up. So far so good.
