Upon Receipt Of Your Plants

Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.


Northern Pin Oak is an excellent choice of shade tree

The trees provide landscapes with shade, character, and gorgeous autumnal displays. Native to the north-central United States the trees are hardy from zones 3 to 9 and can thrive in difficult soils. Though they prefer sandy, well-drained, slightly alkaline to neutral soils, there are oaks capable of doing well in clay soils if other conditions are met. Plant these trees in full sun with plenty of space for them to spread their limbs. Mature trees have a 40- to 60-foot spread, making them an excellent choice for those who enjoy picnics and cookouts in their yard on hot summer days.

Northern Pin Oak can be a focal point with its glossy green and reddish foliage

The tall tree's many, deeply textured leaves are glossy green on the upper side while new branchlets take on reddish tones. A handsome specimen, the tree can act as a sentry at the front of a home or a focal point to ample space. Upper branches lift into a rounded crown while lower branches dip for maximum shade and shelter.

Northern Pin Oak only produces acorns every 2 or 3 years

Oaks are often seen in open spaces surrounded by lawns and natural meadow landscapes. The tree's deep roots allow for easy mowing, and they don't interfere with annual flowers or perennial beds.

Northern Pin Oak's growth rate is slow to moderate, and their thick limbs offer a sturdy appearance. The bark is thin and gray, with undertones of yellow. The pinnate leaves take on a classic oak leaf shape and develop in clusters. Acorns are tidy and attract squirrels and other wildlife. Just before acorns begin to fall and squirrels scurry over the branches, oak leaves transform into fiery oranges and brilliant reds giving depth to otherwise dull landscapes.
