About This Plant

Sun. Deciduous, with deeply lobed leaves and fist-sized acorns. Bur oak is a terrific shade tree, growing up to 100 feet. It is very slow-growing, even for an oak.

Maintenance

Maintenance includes cleanup of tassels, acorns and leaf litter. To prevent oak wilt, prune only in winter, and paint any wounds. Pruning is always optional.
