Planting & Care

1. Planting: For best results, choose an area with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) for your Northern Red Oak. Once you’ve selected your location, dig a hole that’s about 2 or 3 times the width of the tree’s root ball. Place your Oak, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. Finally, add 2 to 3 inches of mulch around the base of the Northern Red to preserve moisture.

2. Watering: When your tree is young, water it weekly for best results. However, rainfall may be adequate if you receive enough. And after a couple of years, you only need to water the Northern Oak during very dry spells. But if you’re not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil, about 2 or 3 inches down – if it’s dry, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: After the first year, add a balanced fertilizer to the soil and repeat the process each spring. Be sure to follow the label instructions carefully. However, after your Northern Red is a few years old, there’s no need to fertilize.

4. Pruning: Remove any dead or drooping branches from your Northern Red for best results.
