Regal Prince Oak is the tall, dark, and handsome tree your landscape has been dreaming of! This strong and sturdy columnar Oak tree is perfect as a specimen where horizontal space is limited, and a row of Regal Prince Oaks along your property line makes an impressive boundary marker and privacy screen. Closely planted, a border of trees will block views and dampen noise and wind. When the wind does blow, the glossy, deep green leaves will flutter gracefully, flashing their pale silvery-green undersides. This hybrid Oak tree adapts to many types of soils and planting conditions and grows just as happily in the country as it does along the mean streets of the city.

The Story

Tree hybridizers are patient people.  It can take decades to know if a certain cross is worth introducing.  Back in 1974, legendary tree man Earl Cully of Jacksonville, Illinois (best known for his much-loved introduction, Heritage® River Birch) collected acorns from a Columnar English Oak × Swamp White Oak cross he’d made.  He raised 1,000 seedlings from that batch; only 6 made the cut.  Regal Prince® was one of the chosen few, though it didn’t receive the final stamp of approval—a patent of its own—until 2002.  Worth the wait.

The Details

Always wanted an Oak tree but never thought you had the room for one? Want and ye shall receive! Strong, narrow and upright branching allows this Oak to be planted in tight, less than typical Oak tree planting locations. Dark green leaves and outstanding form makes this a very unique specimen tree for a landscape of any size.

How to Grow

Regal Prince® Oak has the upswept look of a Columnar English Oak, but it has inherited many improvements from its American Swamp White parent.  Whereas English Oak’s leaves are often mildewed by summer, Regal Prince’s® stay squeaky clean.  Regal Prince® is also much more cold-hardy than purebred English Oaks (it has endured -30°F without a shiver), and its branches are stronger than just about any tree you can name, as its Swamp White parent has the strongest wood of any oak.  This is one sturdy, vigorous, handsome, long-lived, easy-care tree!
