White Oak
no image

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.

Northern Pin oak has an attractive but irregular rounded crown with lower hanging branches. This species is one of the few oak species recommended for the prairies and colder areas. Northern Pin Oak prefers drier habitats.

The spectacular fall leaf color of this tree is the primary reason for its popularity. Fall leaves turn orange and red to reddish brown.

Squirrels, jays, deer, and similar animals love its acorns.
