Description

Scarlet Oak Tree For Sale Affordable Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Scarlet Oak Tree, Quercus coccinea, is native to the eastern U.S. from southern Maine to northern Mississippi and west to central Missouri. Tolerant and adaptable, they will flourish outside their natural range if planted in a suitable spot.

Scarlet Oak Tree are hardy in zones 4 to 9. Like most oaks, they like a sunny, well-drained location with poor to average, somewhat acidic soil. South-facing slopes are favored. Average annual rainfall in their native range is 30 to 55 inches. Mature trees will reach 60 to 80 feet high with a crown spread of 40 to 50 feet. Relatively fast-growing, they may be up to 30 feet tall at 20 years. The crowns are rounded and open, creating dappled shade.

Glossy green in the summer, they change to brilliant scarlet in the fall. Trees may retain their leaves well into the season, a characteristic of oaks. Inconspicuous yellow-green catkins (male flowers) and flowers with petals (female flowers) bloom from April to May. Acorns develop over the summer and are 1/2 to 1 inch long. Trees bear an abundant acorn crop once every several years, attracting squirrels, blue jays, and other acorn-loving animals and birds.

Affordable Scarlet Oaks For Every Landscape

The strong wood resists storm damage. They are considered low maintenance.

Scarlet Oaks are valued as landscaping and street trees, where their summer shade helps to keep their area cool. Because of their height and spread at maturity, they should be planted well away from overhead wires and buildings. Ideal locations are lawns, parks, and school or corporate campuses. Since the trees and leaves are not toxic to other plants, single trees may be featured as specimens in larger landscape groups. Alternatively, several trees may be planted together as a grove.

Scarlet Oak Tree 

One of the details that you'll notice about the Scarlet Oak Tree is the beautiful display of color that it presents during the fall season. The leaves turn from dark green to vibrant shades of red and orange, making the tree almost appear as though it has a fiery quality from far away. The tree is typically seen in yards and along city streets. It provides an abundant amount of shade for those who stand underneath its branches because of the fullness of the leaves. Even though it's a tree native to the Chicago area, it can be seen across the country. 

 

 The Scarlet Oak Tree thrives in climates that are a bit cooler than average and where there is more moisture. The leaves tend to soak up the water that they receive and often turn to darker shades of green in the spring and brighter colors in the fall when there is more moisture. When mature, the tree can reach heights of close to 75 feet with the width reaching about 40 feet. The tree thrives in full sunlight for about six hours during the day and prefers soil that is slightly acidic so that it gets all of the nutrients that the leaves need.
