Quercus Petraea Bareroot Hedging

Sessile Oak, Quercus petraea, is a big native tree that is good for supporting wildlife. It grows on any soil with decent drainage apart from chalk and thrives on rocky, upland sites with high rainfall. It is shade tolerant and quite slow growing. It can be grown as a large screening tree up to about 30 metres high. It is a good, tall windbreak tree.
The plants on this page are young saplings. You can also buy larger Sessile Oak trees here. Browse all of our other varieties of Oak here.

See our full range of hedging options.

Sessile Oak saplings are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).

History & uses of Quercus petraea

In the past, Oak trees were essential to pig farmers, who would feed their herds on the acorns before winter. Oak timber was used extensively in ship building. Sessile Oak is still a valuable timber tree in Europe, with most of the wood being used for furniture and other high quality interior items. Oaks live for a very long time and old trees are able to regenerate after serious damage; some ancient specimens have trunks over 10 metres wide.

Choosing a size: When you are ordering a large quantity of Sessile Oak for a big planting project, we suggest that you buy smaller plants. They are cheaper than large plants, easier to handle and more likely to cope well with poor conditions. Use larger plants for garden or parkland specimens.
All of our young trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
