HOUSTON'S TRUSTED SOURCE FOR THE BUR OAK
If you are drawn to the idea of a rugged, enduring tree with a strong American heritage, the Bur Oak (Quercus macrocarpa) might be the perfect centerpiece for your landscape. Esteemed as one of the most majestic and durable of North American oaks, the Bur Oak stands tall in both stature and character. This mighty oak can reach up to 80 feet in height and spread an impressive 80 feet wide, presenting a commanding presence.
The Bur Oak is a symbol of strength and resilience, known for its ability to withstand harsh conditions, from droughts to high winds. It can live for centuries, providing a lasting legacy and a steady, enduring shade for generations.
This tree is distinguished by its broad, rugged leaves and a massive trunk with deeply furrowed, cork-like bark. One of its most remarkable features is its acorns, which are among the largest of any North American oak, encased in a thick, fringed cup.
When planting a Bur Oak, it’s crucial to consider its long-term growth and space requirements. This oak requires ample room to expand and flourish. While young, regular watering helps establish a robust root system. As it matures, the Bur Oak becomes incredibly drought tolerant, needing minimal care.
Pruning should be minimal, focused on removing only dead or diseased wood and maintaining a strong central leader to encourage a sturdy, upright growth habit.
The Bur Oak is not just a tree; it is a living monument, a testament to endurance and timelessness. Planting a Bur Oak is an investment in the future, a nod to a legacy that will stand the test of time.
