The Bur Oak (Quercus macrocarpa) is a very long-lived tree that grows 70 to 80 feet, with an 80-foot spread. The oak is tolerant of a variety of moisture and soil conditions, adapting well to urban settings. The acorns mature in one growing season, and drop from the tree August through November. It is one of the heaviest acorn producers of the species. Many birds, squirrels, deer, wild turkey black bear and wood ducks enjoy the bur oak’s spoils. Preferred zones are 3 through 8.

The best time of year to plant your trees varies depending on what zone you are in. However, for most zones the best time to plant is between fall and early spring. Planting your trees in the fall allows the trees to root into ground before the dormant season. When planting trees,the hole needs to be twice as wide as, but not deeper than the rootball. The soil should be level with the top of the rootball.
