The English Oak Tree is an imposing and majestic tree, often known as the King of Trees, while the Beech is the Queen. The name, Quercus robur, is derived from the Celtic word ‘Quer’ which means fine and the word ‘Cuez’ which means tree. A Fine Tree it certainly is!
In summer, the English Oak tree is covered in deeply lobed, dark green foliage which turns to a fabulous show of russet brown and bronze in autumn. Autumn also sees the arrival of acorns which add interest and provide a wonderful food source for wildlife, both animals and birds. After the leaves have fallen in winter, the tree offers a stunning bare, gnarled structure of massive trunk and far reaching branches, creating an eye-catching sight. Small clusters of catkins and insignificant flowers are found in spring.
English Oak trees have a spreading form and will reach heights of 7m and spreads of 5m in a 20 year period. They are fully hardy and flourish in full sun or partial shade. Plant in deep, well-drained and lime-free soil for best results.Avoid waterlogged soils where possible.
This grand tree is ideal for a large garden, open parks, public spaces and looks magnificent lining a long and imposing driveway. Oak trees are known to live for 100’s of years and are well embedded into English culture in folklore, traditions, art and poetry. Plant yours where it will see generation after generation of your family.
