The Cherrybark Oak (Quercus pagoda) is one of the most highly valued red oaks in the southern United States. Larger and better formed than southern red oak, the cherrybark oak commonly grows on more moist sites. Wild turkeys, gray squirrels, blue jays, deer, raccoons, and other waterfowl frequently eat the acorns from this tree. Acorn seeds germinate best in natural conditions in the spring following the autumn seed fall. Preferred zones are 6-9.
Trees can be ordered as seedlings or super accelerators in quantities of 12 or 24. Trees in 3-gallon containers can only be ordered in packs of 24. Bulk discounts are available - call for pricing. 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.
