Description

Black Oak Seedlings: Quercus Kelloggii is a Slow Growing part of the Oak Family.

Black Oak Seedlings are surprisingly a part of the red oak family. These beautiful trees tend to be slow-growing; they usually only grow between 18-22 inches a year. While the tree prefers acidic and well-drained soil, it can also thrive in sandy soil or even clay. The bark colors and patterns are one of the. While the bark becomes darker as the tree ages, the inside bark shines its inner beauty. It’s layered with a splash of bright colors of yellow and orange. Many people use the interior bark to make different colors and types of dyes. These trees tend to have their most gorgeous set of leaves during the beginning of April. During this time, the leaves develop a shiny green color on the top of the leaves. The leaves create a piece of fabric-like texture underneath during this time of the year. They stay on the tree until the middle of fall, when they fall off. During the fall season, these leaves turn deep shades of red, orange, and dark brown. While they are good at tolerating a drought for a short time, they thrive when placed in direct sunlight. Many landscapers recommend this tree due to its large crown canopy.

Just the crown of the tree can reach a total of 40-50 feet, and it’s due to this fact that many species of birds love to call it home. Other playful species of animals such as squirrels and deer love this tree because of its plump acorns. The small light green acorns grow and turn a dark brown color once they mature. The maturity of these usually takes 2-3 years. Once ripe, animals or people usually harvest the acorns. Many Native Americans have used acorns to prevent fevers and indigestion. These sturdy, vibrant trees grow best when planted in large fields or yards. Sunny conditions must be maintained to avoid the seedlings dying.

Black Oak Seedlings prefer Acidic and Well Drained Soil. 

They are slow growers, only growing around 18 inches per year. The soils that are preferred are acidic and well-drained. They will show their brightest foliage during April, but it tends to have the same foliage year-round until they shed their leaves in the fall and winter. Overall, the canopy can get quite large.
