White Oak vs Ussurian Pear (Siberian)

Quercus alba

Pyrus ussuriensis

NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

White Oak
Ussurian Pear (Siberian)

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.

Ussurian Pear (aka Manchurian or Siberian Pear) is the most cold hardy of all pear species.

This self-pollinating pear bears white flowers in the spring and has good fall colour, making it an exceptional ornamental addition to any garden. However, it has a tendency to branch quite low and is often used in shelterbelts and hedges too.

It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, and is also an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.
