This tree grows at a slow to medium rate, with height increases of anywhere from less than 12" to 24" per year.
Full sun and partial shade are best for this tree, meaning it prefers a minimum of four hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.
The white oak prefers slightly acidic to neutral, deep, moist, well-drained soil. While adaptable to other soil textures, it is intolerant of alkaline, shallow or abused urban soils. It can, however, tolerate moderate drought and occasional wet soil.
Provides great fall color, with leaves turning showy shades of red or burgundy.
Develops notably strong branches.
Can live for centuries.
Features alternating leaves that are 4â8" long with 3â4 rounded, finger-like lobes on each side and one at the tip. Intervening sinuses sometimes reach almost to the mid-rib.
Produces long, yellowish-green catkins drooping in clusters in the spring.
Yields acorns that are up to 1" long with warty cap that covers about Â¼ of the nut.
Grows in an oval or rounded shape.
Develops a deep taproot, making it difficult to transplant.
Is extremely sensitive to soil compaction and grade changes.
The acorns are one of the best sources of food for wildlife and are gathered, hoarded and eaten by birds, hoofed browsers and rodents. Leaf buds also are eaten by several bird species, and all parts of the tree are a favorite food for deer.
