Ginkgo Biloba
Schuettes Oak

The Ginkgo Biloba is regarded as one of the most distinctive and beautiful of all the deciduous trees, and has remained genetically unchanged for millions of years. Its beautifully fan-shaped leaves develop a clear yellow colour in fall. Graceful and attractive year-round, Ginkgo is the perfect conversation starter in your yard.

Schuettes Oak is a naturally occurring hybrid of Swamp White Oak and Bur Oak. With a faster growth than both parent species, it is one of the fastest growing Oak trees. They are known for growing very large and wide, so space them appropriately. It is considered one of the most adaptable Oaks with little preference on soil conditions. It can handle growing in wet, saturated soils as well as those that are dry, clay, or alkaline.

The Schuettes Oak has very large acorns. They have a large cup portion like the Bur Oak, but without the fringe. Due to the Swamp White Oak parentage, the acorns have less tannins and a sweeter taste. They are a food source for various wildlife including birds, squirrels, and deer.
