Planting & Care

1. Planting: Do not plant too close to structures, streets, or sidewalks, and ensure you select an area with well-drained soil and full sun (at least 6-8 hours of sunlight per day).

Dig your hole twice as wide and as deep as of the root ball. Place the tree, keeping the trunk straight as you backfill the soil, and gently tamp down the soil with your shovel until it's firm. Water the planting area thoroughly, and spread a 2 to 3-inch layer of mulch around the tree.

2. Watering: Over-watering is a common tree care mistake. As a rule of thumb, your soil should be kept moist, but allow it to dry out somewhat between waterings. Usually, 30 seconds with a steady stream of water from a garden hose once a week in the cooler seasons is sufficient. In warmer climates, you may need to water 2 to 3 times weekly. Cease watering during the winter.

3. Fertilizing: Oak Trees typically experience a quick spurt of growth in the spring, followed by slower growth throughout the summer and fall seasons. Apply your fertilizer in the early spring before this initial spring growth spurt starts. The best fertilizers for Oak Trees are those with a nutrient ratio of 12-6-6 or 12-4-8. While a healthy Shumard Oak doesn't require fertilization, occasional feeding can help boost tree growth and acorn production.

4. Pruning: Pruning your tree during the winter months will allow it to heal in spring when it will recover more quickly. At first, limit trimming only to dead or broken branches on newly planted trees. Two to three years after planting, you can begin trimming to shape the tree as needed.
