Willow Oak Seedlings, Quercus phellos, are native to the eastern and central portions of the United States. These can often be found near bodies of water and grow well in areas with poor drainage. It prefers acidic, well-drained soil but will grow in the poorly drained area.
These are deciduous trees, and the foliage will change to a yellow-orange in fall before losing its leaves. This hardy tree is known for tolerating harsh and rough environmental conditions. The tree has been referred to by many as the “Handsome Tree” mainly because it comes with standout features such as willow-like leaves and spear-shaped foliage.
These seedlings usually bloom during the mid-spring season for about 1-2 weeks, shortly before the vernal leaves have developed. The seedlings can multiply rapidly in growth rate and size, especially when planted in fertile regions. The trees have an attractive appearance when grown in the garden.
They have great light, bright/green foliage color, which occurs during the spring, and bronze-yellow foliage, which appears during the fall. Apart from this, their pyramidal shape and thin saucer-like acorns add more attraction.
They are easy to grow since they require little caring. The notion behind this is based on the fact that these seedlings can grow in harsh climatic environments such as those affected by pollution and drought.
Apart from this, the seedlings are not prone to insect attacks and diseases. The seedlings only require water and a little bit of cultivation help when growing up.
In the Eastern and central United States, this seedling is a deciduous tree that grows from sixty-five to one hundred feet tall on average. Found growing most densely along floodplains with another woodland cover.
Acorns with shallow cups are produced in high volume by this tree, making it a food source for birds, squirrels, and other woodland creatures. The Willow Oak can provide these acorns when it is as young as fifteen years, much earlier than other oak tree species.
Even so, maturity is not reached until the tree is about fifty years old, providing plenty of years in between to round out and gain girth. The tree takes full advantage of these years, growing at a relatively quick rate of up to two feet per year. This quick growth rate makes them a popular target for logging and other cultivation activities. This tree is used in lumber, pulp, paper, and even just decoration due to the rich color of its wood.
