We choose to grow burr oaks because of the wildlife support and future food they provide ecosystems. The acorns are selected for their large size some as big as golf balls. Burr oaks are in the white oak family and grow between 90-160 feet. One of the larger and slower growing oaks trunks can reach upward of ten feet in diameter. Oaks are some of the oldest trees often living up to 1000 years. Sadly, oaks have been deforested at an alarming rate as they are prized for their timber. Replanting oaks on your property not only can increase the value of your land but is a wonderful legacy to leave behind. We try to plant as many as we can every year! The oak seedlings also make beautiful additions to your edible landscape turning a flurry of rainbow colors in the fall settling on a deep red in when dormant.

One single oak can produce over 10 million acorns in a life time feeding over 100 species. Acorns are the largest of any north American oak making them keystone species for wildlife. 


In the white oak family Bur oaks play a significant role in supporting wildlife. A truly majestic tree.  Growing oaks is a wonderful meditation on time and legacy. Bur oak is the preferred food for wood ducks and wild turkey. Oaks are a keystone species for ecosystem health. Bur oaks are wonderful additions to food plots for hunters and for memorial plantings.  With oak populations declining it is important that we collectively invest in oaks.
