Christmas present

treenutt(8)December 13, 2013

I am going to ask Santa for a white oak (Quercus alba) for Christmas. It will be planted in Trinity county in the community of Friday near Groveton, Pennington and Glendale. Any suggestions as to where to get one from? I'm hoping Santa will bring one in a pot at about 5' - 6' ft. tall. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks treenutt

No way, it's just that even Santa couldn't find one. :-) Hopefully someone will chime in soon about where a white oak can be purchased.

That must be true. They are hard to find. I've tried.

Nativ Nursery has them in stock, maybe not as big as you want.

Here is a link that might be useful: Quercus alba

Check out the SFA University Mast Arboretum spring plant sale April 5 - starts at 9am. They have all kinds of oaks at good prices - young trees, easily planted. This is a sale I never miss - so many interesting things that cannot be found at nurseries. They have one in fall also, usually October 5-6. If you don't find a white oak by then, SFA will have it. Or you might try Cooks Nursery in Nacogdoches but theirs will probably be larger and expensive. SFA is your best bet probably. They publish a list of what they will have a couple of weeks before the sale - check the website. I just checked my fall list - they had "Quercus Alba" - white oak. Also Southern Red Oak, Mexican Royal Oak, Overcup Oak[have one of these, a wonderful tree], Burr Oak, Swamp Chestnut Oak, Chinquapin Oak, Shumard Red Oak, Pecos, Post Oak and Live Oaks.

Lufkin gives away free trees on Arbor Day, January 31, at the Lufkin Mall from 9am - noon - pines and hardwood seedlings - you might find some white oaks there. Come early - there is always a line.
