Towering Oak Trees and How They Help

Towering Oak Trees and How They Help

Oak Trees 

Oak Trees are strong, hardy, and versatile. Besides being beautiful, states Dennis from Tn Nursery, a leading nursery shipper of quality oak trees. There are wide varieties, which are native to various country areas and lend themselves to landscaping.

The Water Oak Tree is essential in landscaping when a natural look is wanted. They are almost as wide as tall and reach 80 feet when grown in a forest. They are aptly named as this tree grows well where there is lots of water: swampy land. The dark leaves fall late in their native habitat of the Deep South and may not fall in milder areas. Water Oaks are faster growing than some oaks and have lovely spatula-shaped leaves.

A Red Oak tree prefers acidic soil; this name knows an entire group of oaks. These trees are enormous, with some specimens reaching 140 feet in height throughout the eastern states. They are specimen trees in landscaping; furthermore, they are prized for their versatile lumber. It is estimated that these trees can reach 500 years old. Most have leaves that turn a gorgeous dark red.

The Willow Oak is native to the southeastern states and frequently is used in landscaping applications. It is not as tall as other oaks; it reaches perhaps 30 feet in height at maturity. These trees are called Willow Oaks because of their leaves, which resemble willow leaves. They are an essential winter food source for birds and other wildlife as their acorn crop is copious.

White Oak

When people think of oaks, they often think of the White Oak. These trees are 100 feet tall with leaves up to 9 inches long. They are also native to the eastern states. White oaks are perhaps most important for their acorns which feed a wide variety of wildlife, such as deer and squirrels. These trees can be as comprehensive as they are tall and live for 300 years. The leaves are usually brown in the autumn but can be purple or red. The shape and arrangement of the branches on trees in winter can be as arresting and beautiful as the tree in the whole leaf.

The Pin Oaktree is a medium-sized deciduous tree. It boasts smaller fine-cut leaves and multiplies; They can live for 120 years. These trees produce drooping lower branches; furthermore, the general shape is often rounded at the top. It is native from the eastern states to the Midwest. They thrive in poorly drained areas but do not grow well where the ground is wet. Frequently you see these oaks used as a focal point of a large lawn. These oaks are produced in other countries such as Argentina and Australia.

The oak tree is beautiful; perhaps an oak was what Joyce Kilmer wrote about in these famous lines: I think that I shall never see / A poem lovely as a tree.
