Gambel Oak Seedlings During The Holidays at Trees That Please Nursery.

Trees That Please Nursery may be closed for the holidays
but our work continues.

Each year we harvest Gambel Oak Acorns from trees planted in isolation or from native populations from around the state of New Mexico.

Acorns are either planted immediately or refrigerated until planting.

In either case, acorns are in the soil by October or November where they germinate and grow overwinter in seed flats in one of our heated greenhouses. In the photo below (Look Closely) you see young Gambel Oaks on Christmas Eve at the nursery. These young seedlings will become our future tree stock in 3-4 years depending upon vigor.

 This is just one of the many tree species we propagate annually.
