Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

Southern Live Oak is a large, long-lived native deciduous tree with a short trunk, low branches, and broad rounded crown.  The long leathery dark green foliage is nearly evergreen and only drops once new leaves are ready to replace them.  Acorns with a scale a cap that covers 1/3 of the acorn are ripe within one season.  Best grown in full sun and rich, moist, acidic well-drained soils.  Spanish Moss often grows on Live Oak.
