Ornamental Value

Looking to add a shade tree to your landscape? Consider the majestic Bur Oak. A native to the midwest, Bur Oak boasts good drought and pollution tolerance, strong limbs, and dense shade. Bur Oak is an excellent native tree that hosts many insect and animal species through offering shelter and food from its acorns. Generally though, it can take up to 35 years before the first acorns appear. Bur oaks live more than 200-300 years! We love Bur Oak because it will provide shade and beauty for generations to come!
