Plant Details: White Oak
3 - 9
Q. alba has dense strong wood that offer great qualities as a shade tree to be planted near buildings without fear of wind damage as it has survived many windstorms to grace the lawns of many old home sites. The fall foliage turns a deep red. This is the most commonly planted oak by hunters because the acorns are the preferred mass crop for deer and other wildlife in the fall. This oak grows into a very large tree, quickly for the first 10 years to about 15'High then slows down its growth rate as its canopy starts to develop. After this spurt of growth one can expect to get 1' per year there after with the mature size being well over 100'High x 60'Wide.
