Turkey Oak, Quercus cerris, saplings are vigorous plants that will grow into soaring parkland trees. Suitable for any well-drained, moderately fertile soil this big tree is one of the most vigorous oaks, typically spreading out as wide as it is tall when mature. The autumn colour is a mellow brown with some brighter bronze tones. It is easy to tell Turkey oak from a native oak by looking at the acorn cups, which have moss-like growths on them, unlike the smooth cups of the native oaks. The leaf buds also have bristly brown hairs. Turkey Oak is a good choice if you want a tall, majestic oak tree but don't want to wait for the slower growing Common Oak. It can be grown as a screening tree up to about 30 metres high and is a good windbreak tree. The plants on this page are young saplings. You can also buy larger Turkey Oak trees here.
