The Benefits of Willows & Oaks All In One
Combining the beauty of willow-like leaves and the color-changing foliage of oaks, the Willow Oak is a unique and stunning landscape pick. Its vibrant leaves start off light to bright green in summer before changing to lovely yellows and reds in fall for quintessential autumn hues.

For fast-growing shade, soil adaptability and appealing foliage, choose the Willow Oak! Your landscape will quickly benefit from its undeniable, one-of-a-kind charm.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Willow Oak in a spot in your yard that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Pick a spot that will give this tree plenty of room to grow.
Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the tree's root ball. After you plant the tree, tamp down the soil until it is firm. Thoroughly water the base of the tree, so that water penetrates the roots. Spread a good amount of mulch around the base of the tree to retain moisture.
2. Watering: Water the tree to keep the ground moist. Watering deeply, once a week, should be enough to help your young tree establish roots. Once your tree matures, you only need to water in the dry seasons where you get less than 1 inch of rainfall each month.
3. Fertilizing: If you notice that your tree is not growing steadily every year, you can add a general-purpose fertilizer once a year.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship within 1-2 days. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Because this tree is grown in a burlap bag, its roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around the pot. This brings moisture and nutrients into the tree, for faster, healthier growth and ease. Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included), then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!
