Grows 50 to 80 feet. Dense foliage is bluish-green, to reddish-brown in autumn. Grows best in a deep, loamy, well-drained soil. Tree from which the phrase ‘Mighty Oak’ was coined. Known for their broad, round head and massive, wide spreading branches. An excellent specimen tree needing plenty of room to mature properly. Also, the most prolific lumber oak in the Northern Hemisphere. Advantages of white oak are that they are easily transplanted when young and they have a high resistance to ice breakage and oak wilt. Also, a good tolerance of highway salt. They are a long-lived tree and require very little maintenance. Native to eastern to mid United States. Wetland species. (2 yr, 4-8 in.)
