we took a nationwide poll of deer enthusiasts and asked which oak has
provided more successful hunts than any other, white oak would
undoubtedly be on the top of the list. Found from the Gulf Coast all
the way up and into Canada on a variety of site types, the true white
oak is known for its timber quality and wildlife value. Like the
regular white oak, this smaller version is also fairly low in tannins.
These acorns begin their descent in early fall and can provide a
quality, easy meal for turkey, deer and other critters for a months
time on good years. We've spent a great deal of time and effort on
this species to provide the public with seedlings from parent trees
that exhibit traits land managers and our target quarry prefer. White
oak trees and their acorns are extremely variable in quality, and we go
the extra mile to provide seedlings from about twenty parent trees (out
of more than we care to count) in hopes of passing on genetics that
wildlife enthusiasts prefer. Any moderate to well drained upland or
bottomland soil with an acid to neutral pH (our parent trees soil’s
range from 4.8-7.0) should be a welcome home to our white oaks. TREE SIZE UPON DELIVERY - RAPID MAST SEEDLING 10"+
