Product Overview

Live Oaks are large, strong, and stately evergreens that have become a staple of the American South. This moderate-growing oak can reach a height of 60 ft. to 80 ft. with a spread between 60 ft. to 100 ft. With its height and spread, live oaks make for great shade trees. While the Live Oak is very adaptable, it does require a large area for its spreading trunk to be accommodated. With enough room to grow, however, Live Oaks give one's yard a sense of establishment and history. The wood of the Live Oak is hard, tough, and strong, and the tree also produces sweet, edible acorns. It is hardy to about 5° (Zones 7-10). Live Oaks can survive for centuries and planting one is a small task that can leave a large gift for future generations. The plant is shipped in a #1 pot with a minimum height of 18 in.
  • An amazingly durable American native tree
  • Excellent street tree in the South
  • Will survive for generations to come
  • Mature tree height of 40 ft. to 80 ft.
  • Tree height at time of shipping varies based on growing season

This tree is a SURVIVOR. the instructions online were completely wrong and killed every tree we received except the live oak. Live potted trees are not bare root and should not be treated the same. Somehow these oaks still survived.

My tree came yesterday. I was surprised to see a very different tree from what was in the picture. The leaves are VERY different. I was expecting to get what is pictured on the website. I’m not very pleased with this purchase. I will contact customer service and see what they’ll say.

I ordered 8 of these and planted them within 48 hours. After 3 weeks, it appears that 6 of the 8 (75%) will take root and probably survive. Two are not likely to make it and may already be dead. 75% for mail order plants it not horrible.
