The classic looking oak tree is one that is prized for it's larger leaves and abundant shade producing abilities. The Shumard Oak is one that grows more pyramidal in it's younger stages then it will branch out creating a more vase like look offering a beautiful structure as well as ample shade. This particular oak works well in all landscapes due to its ability to establish quickly and become a more drought tolerant water wise tree. Shumard Oaks are one of the more easily identifiable oak trees as well, it's shiny dark green leaves can reach 8\ long with deep spiny looking lobes. Late fall color turns the tree a vibrant red that stays with the tree for a few weeks before shedding it's old growth in preparation to push out new spring growth.

The Shumard Oak is a faster-growing oak species that is considered a medium sized tree which is very durable and long-lived. The many uses of this tree make it a perfect addition to your landscape

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.

I'm a midwest kid and Oak trees hold a special place in my memory. I finally pulled the trigger and getting one planted in the yard, and boy am I happy I did. In the past I've not been one to really care about how my landscape looked (aside from keeping it clean), but with the economy the way it is, me and the family will be staying in the house a while, so we made the decision to invest and make our yard more comfortable. I made an appointment with a designer, and picked a big one to have planted. Process was super smooth and easy with Moon Valley. Great job!

I wanted a tree to make me feel more at home after moving to the desert. I came into the nursery and was greeted by a great moon valley employee who cared for my needs and wants. After having this tree for several months I cant wait to get another

This is our second Shumard Oak tree. The first one that was planted didn’t make it. Moon Valley Nursery stands behind their guarantee. The second tree was planted last Fall when it’s leaves were beautiful red. We waited rather impatiently for the new leaves this Spring and the tree is just beautiful — very full and the leaves get bigger every day. So glad we picked this tree with the help of the knowledgeable sales staff.

Had 4 of these planted on a hill side in back yard and they are beautiful. They are full, and have broad leaves that cast large quantities of shade throughout my landscape. I can not wait for Fall so they turn color and I get to enjoy the beautiful fall color and the different shades of red, yellow and burgundy.
