Meet the plant
The texture and stature of this tree is unparalleled. In the world of Oak trees it stands as a favorite for its artistic spreading branches and deeply furrowed bark. Its stems have corky ridges that add to the texture. Bur Oak is best planted in a park-like setting where its habit can be truly appreciated.

Bur Oak is a native tree. It is slow-growing and long-lived. It can and will reach a stately 70-80′ in height and 50′ in spread. And yes, it will produce acorns!
