I have 1 variety of oak available this year, which is sourced from Twisted Tree Farm and described below. 

These are first year seedlings in the range of 1' tall. Since these are taprooting trees, it is preferable for the tree to be transplanted very small to promote root health. All seedlings are shipped dormant as bare roots.


Seedling Bur x Gambel Oak:

Twisted Tree

Quercus macrocarpa x gambelii

Seed source: Akiva Silver, Twisted Tree Farm

Akiva's description: Bears huge crops medium size acorns at a young age. Very prolific and very low tannin. These are the easiest of all the acorns we have tried leaching. It usually only requires one or two changes of hot water to remove tannins.

Additional description: Height 30-40'. Cross pollinates with bur oak and itself. Having 2 plants helps with the overlap of flowering and fertility plus yields. Prefers sandy, sandy loam; not for wet soils. Zone 4-9. Despite not being the fastest growing oak, it is the most precocious hybrid bearing acorns on small trees. Usually has low tannin in its acorns making it suitable for acorn flour. This is the cross to use for precocity.

You will receive an email when plants begin shipping. This will be once they go dormant for the winter in early November. Local pickup orders will also receive an email with the potential pickup dates when we get closer because this depends on the weather.
