This majestic tree, also known as common oak, develops a magnificent, broad and spreading crown of lobed green leaves on sturdy branches.
Yellow hanging catkins are produced in spring, followed by acorns and a stunning change in leaf colour to reddish-brown in the autumn.
Prefers clay soils and damp lowlands but generally tolerant.
Value To Wildlife:
Excellent for many forms of wildlife, the native oaks support more insect species than any other tree; even its fallen leaves support biodiversity.
You’ll receive a 2 year old well established whip that's between 20 to 60cm in height.
This is a deciduous tree and so will shed its leaves in autumn, in order to protect itself from the cold winter weather. Come spring, it’ll burst back into bud and begin to flourish once more.
