White Oak
Large Leaf Linden

White Oak is large, long-lived tree with an irregular trunk divided into spreading, often horizontal, stout branches. A highly adaptable tree, White Oak features green acorns and beautiful green leaves that turn red-purple in the fall.

With a huge growth in bourbon and scotch over the past few decades there is an emerging shortage of white oak that is the primary tree used for cask barrels and aging.

Note: Most Oak species can be considered toxic for many animals.

Large Leaf Linden is a tall, deciduous tree native to Europe. Large Leaf Linden features oblong leaves that turn from yellow-green to brilliant yellow in the fall. Large Leaf Linden is ideal as a shade or ornamental tree in a larger yard.
