Product details

This tree has been around in the UK since the mid 1700s but remains rare and in the domain of arboretums and estates.

Long thin willow like leaves set it apart from its oak family and it’s only when acorns are set in the autumn do you recognize its origins.

Quercus phellos prefers a free draining fertile soil with plenty of volume to spread its root system.

It is constrained by low soil volumes in urban tree pits so never makes a good tree in this environment.

Its leaves turn an orange / yellow in the autumn before leaf fall, the best autumn colour comes from trees planted in neutral to acid land. 

Quercus phellos develops a broad crown at maturity making it loo large for a garden tree.

Ideally give it a 20 metre spacing from other trees and watch it develop over the next two hundred years.

Mature height: 17-22m
