had a few complaints from customers thinking we sent them white oak
instead of a hybrid Bimundors oak, and we totally understand why they
think we made a mistake, because the two can look almost identical!
Bimundors oak is a cross between English oak (Quercus robur) and our native white oak, (Quercus alba)
which look very similar to begin with. These two oaks are so much
alike, that we don’t think the trees themselves can tell each other
True white oaks are still great, and we choose from nothing but the
best, but open grown Bimundors oaks seems to drop more consistently and
at a younger age. We also like the fact that many of them do have
brilliant colors in the fall. We’ve narrowed our parents down to a few
trees: one of them lacks the brilliant fall color, but has the biggest
“white oak” acorns you’ve ever seen. Another parent tree has beautiful
red to purple fall color, and drops loads of smallish acorns. Most
importantly, all of the parent trees began producing acorns before
reaching a diameter of six inches! TREE SIZE UPON DELIVERY - RAPID MAST SEEDLING 10"+
