 Willow Oaks are a widely used shade tree around the United States. It grows pretty quickly and it provides great shade. Not to be confused with a weeping willow, this tree is indeed an oak tree, but the leaves of the willow oak tree look like willow leaves. In good conditions the willow oak tree will grow pretty quickly once established. A handsome oak with willow-like leaves. Foliage is light to bright green in summer and yellow, yellow-brown and russet in fall. Relatively fast-growing, it tolerates poorly drained soil. Prefers acid soil and full sun. Grows to 40'-60' with a 35' spread. These willow oak trees are typically found growing near rivers and creeks, they can grow in wet areas and do tend to soak up a lot of water like a weeping willow does! Once established, they are very drought resistant. These made a great hard shade tree that is beautiful.

Willow oak trees seem hard to find anymore. In fact many I have talked to didn’t even have a clue what it is! It is a native oak that grows in many areas and is a quick grower with a long lifespan and make a perfect shade tree! Trust me on this one folks, this is a tree you want! Be happy the weavers offer this beautiful tree, I am!

Thank you very much! We appreciate you! Thank you for supporting our small family business! God Bless

Why are these so hard to find?

Willow oak must be hard to grow when they are tiny seedlings or something because I could not find a willow oak tree anywhere! We have 4 local nurseries. None of them had willow oak, they said they never carry willow oak! I looked all over online and the few I found they wanted $80 plus $40 shipping for one 3ft willow oak. Luckily I found weaver family farms nursery. You guys are my hero. I ordered 3 of them from you for less than the $80 one cost. Of course these are about 16” so about half as tall but your price is much lower and the willow oaks you sent us were nearly flawless. Most plants you buy have some kind of bug bites or discolored leaves etc which is normal. We are very happy with these willow oak trees and will be back very soon. Also happy to find out after reading more about you guys that you are a small licensed nursery in missouri on a small 4 acre farm and it’s your family selling these are a hobby in spare time and you ended up getting pretty popular for offering native trees that others don’t have like my willow oaks! Again thanks a million!

Thank you very much! We appreciate you! Thank you for supporting our small family business! God Bless
