Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Bur Oak is a large native deciduous tree with a broad-spreading rounded crown.  The large leathery lobed foliage has a pair of deep sinuses in the middle and turns shades of yellow-brown in fall. The large acorns have mossy bur cups that extend halfway down the nut.  Best grown in full sun and rich well-drained soils.
