 Pin Oak trees are popular trees that are often overlooked. Many think of oaks as massive, slow-growing trees, but that is not really the case with the pin oak tree. These are a personal favorite tree of ours for multiple reasons. Pin oak is also known as Swamp oak, Spanish oak, & Water oak. We love the way they look when mature, & they don’t get super-wide. They tend to stay a little more narrow. These are overall strong native trees that can live well over 100 years. They do well in many different kinds of soils and they are one of the fastest-growing oak trees that exist. The acorns that pin oaks drop are really small so they tend to be much less of a walking hazard than some oak trees like the Bur oak which has very large acorn nuts.

The pin oak is the type of tree that stands out from its neighbors. Its distinctive branching pattern sets it apart from other oaks. Homeowners and city foresters like this tree for many reasons: dense shade, tolerance of many soil conditions, can handle the heat, compacted soil, and air pollution, pleasing to the eye in all seasons, and easy to plant. This fast-growing oak is common in yards, along streets, and throughout parks. We personally have many pin oaks young and old growing on our small family farm. Something we find interesting about pin oak trees is that sometimes they will hold many leaves (around half) even once the leaves have dried and turned brown, not all of them always fall off in the fall. They are far from an evergreen but the leaves that hold on through most of the winter help become a wind block even in winter, more than a totally bare tree.

All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.

Little smaller than I thought

Little smaller than I thought but had good root system

Hey Darrel, I am happy to hear it had a good root system, we do focus on good root systems more than how tall a tree appears above the surface so you end up with a better tree in the long run. I’m sorry you feel it was a little to short. Just checking, did you by chance see the full description on the average size these are when we mail them out? ☺️If it wasn’t close to the advertised size let us know in email or our Facebook page messages and we will help you out! Thanks!

Good tree
