  Recommended Planting Range



Bur oak is a remarkable tree for its beauty, character, and variety. It grows slowly at first, but more rapidly once it has become established. It is very drought resistant, and long-lived. It does well in sandy or loamy soil, but needs direct sunlight. Acorns are highly valued by wildlife.
