The Bur Oak (Quercus Macrocarpa) is a dense shade tree, growing with height increases of less than 12″ per year. Grows to a height of 70–80′ and a spread of around 80′ at maturity. Grows well in acidic, alkaline, loamy, sandy, well-drained, wet and clay soils. While it prefers moderate moisture, the tree has some drought tolerance. The Bur Oak grows larger than average acorns, loved by various wildlife. This mighty oak is a sight to behold. Features a textured crown, wild and wooly acorns and a massive trunk with rough and deeply furrowed bark.
Full sun is the ideal condition for this tree, meaning it should get at least six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.
