Oaks (Quercus species), are large, spreading trees with sturdy branches and distinctive, lobed leaves.
Except for Holm Oak (Quercus ilex), they are not suitable for use in a clipped hedge.
Oaks grow to 20-30 metres tall.
What size Oak trees should I buy?
- If you are not in a hurry to get a full sized Oak tree, we recommend starting with the smaller 6/8cm girth size.
- If you are in a hurry and need instant impact, then go for the 8/10cm girth size.
Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height.
So, a 6/8cm Standard Oak tree is much bigger than an 60/80cm sapling Oak tree. If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product description.
