Oak - Tree of strength, power and longevity
Tree of strength, power and longevity, the mighty oak is characterized by durability and solidity not least because of its mighty size, but due to its long-life span. An important feature is its beautiful appearance, easily identified by its distinctive curved foliage and iconic acorn seed.
The oaks are covered with smooth bark, while the bark of older trees is dark grey, thick and cracked.
Preferred planting conditions
Oak is suited to fresh and fertile soil. It produces a tap root, so only very young trees can be replanted. Oak also tolerates poorer and drier soils. It owes its name to the acorns growing directly from the twigs. Mighty oaks also require a lot of space.
Each tree comes with a beautiful card, hand-illustrated by the very person who grew these trees. The card includes details of growing conditions and information about the tree species, with a blank page to allow you to hand-write or leave a printed message for your loved one.
This beautiful oak makes great gift for someone determined and inspiring perhaps approaching a big birthday... or a thoughtful wedding gift to symbolise a strong, lasting relationship.
Price includes delivery. Gift trees will be delivered in 3-5 working days upon receipt of the order.
NOTE: Deciduous gift trees (beech, oak, rowan and sycamore) delivered between October and May will not have leaves as they are now dormant during this time. The tree is still perfectly healthy, it is just asleep, and it will regrow its bright, glossy foliage again in the spring. These trees actually prefer to be planted during this period, so it is the best time to gift!
