How to Grow

Oak trees enjoy full sun, but soil conditions are where these two trees differ. Pin Oaks require acid soil; if the soil isn’t acidic enough the leaves will turn yellow. Red Oaks, on the other hand, can tolerate a wider range of soil conditions. Oaks can have an irregular growth habit while young, but it will straighten out in time. (Kind of like that scrawny kid in elementary school that grows into the star quarterback on the high school football team – see, it all works out)! Applying a medium to high rate fertilizer in the fall should help it out too. Just applying it once a year for the first few years should be enough. The more fertilizer you give your Oak tree – the more it will grow! Oaks are another example of trees that don’t need a lot of pruning. Oak trees are relatively pest free. You may have an occasional problem with scale, which are tiny sucking insects usually found in clusters along branches and leaves.
