The Post Oak (Quercus stellata) is a small tree, typically ranging from 30 to 45-feet tall. The post oak grows on drier sites. The leaves have a very distinctive shape, with three perpendicular terminal lobes, shaped like a cross. The branching pattern of this tree often gives it a rugged appearance. The acorns will mature in their first summer from October to November. Acorns are eaten by most small critters, wild turkey and of course deer. USDA preferred zones are 6 through 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.
