Would You Like To Leave A Footprint In The Year 2715?

Trees That Please Nursery grows
the Columnar English Oak (Quercus robur var. Fastigiata) from acorns.

The Columnar English Oak has a lifespan of 700 years.

So If You Would Like To Leave A Footprint In The Year 2715 Plant A
Columnar English Oak!

Our Nursery Staff  just up-potted a couple hundred

into 5-gallon containers.

This oak is a native to Europe.
It has an upright and narrow columnar growth form.

It can grow to 50 to 60 feet in height and about 10 to 15 feet in width. It makes a good substitute for the Lombardy poplar
but with super long lifespan and no root suckers popping up around the yard.

Plant them at the entrance to your property like giant Roman Pillars or Columns. The Columnar English Oak grows best in full sun and needs regular to low water.
It is hardy to USDA Zone 4
