Oak Trees for Sale

Quercus Varieties in Standard Sizes

Most standard trees are only delivered bareroot, during the winter planting season (Nov-March).

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.

  • The native oaks are Common Oak (Quercus robur) and Sessile Oak (Quercus petraea).
  • The best oak for wet soil is Pin Oak (Quercus palustris). It is also good for inner city planting because its roots are adapted to low-oxygen environments, which are found underneath urban concrete and tarmac.
  • The most ornamental Oak is probably Red Oak (Quercus rubra), with its fiery autumn colour.
  • Holm Oak (Quercus ilex) is evergreen and will grow right next to the sea. This is the only type of oak that clips nicely into a hedge. It is also the best oak for a year-round windbreak.
  • Turkey Oak (Quercus cerris) is the most vigorous oak that we grow.

Oaks grow to 20-30 metres tall.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height. Therefore, 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 descriptions.

All our trees are covered by our no-quibble 1 Year Replacement Guarantee, which means you can order with complete confidence. Best advice & friendly support throughout. Please note that there is always a delivery charge for standard sized trees.
