Oaks of the Wild West


Oak Trees Varieties We Carry

We collect acorns from the wild in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. We also source acorns from California and other areas in the US. We grow trees from the wide variety of acorns collected.

We also pay attention to how Oak trees grow in the wild, if they are growing on a rocky hillside (they probably require more drainage) or growing next to a creek (they are probably well-adapted to times of lots of water and periods of drought).

We also know that trees planted in correct location on your property can add shade during hot weather, shielding portions of the house or the same deciduous Oak tree can let in extra light and warmth during colder winter weather. It's a topic commonly known as "Landscaping for Energy Savings".

Other Oak Tree Varieties

We carry smaller amounts of other Oak species as well. Through some of our contacts, we also have some English Oak (Quercus Rober) and California Live Oak, Interior Live Oak and California Valley Oak.

New this year are collected Hinkley acorns. This is another one of the Oak varieties (like a Vasey Oak or a Mohn's Oak) that are small trees typically not more than 10 to 12 feet. Great for a smaller landscape area!

We also plant out our Oak varieties and track how they grow in the different environments between SE Arizona and Central Texas.

Oak trees varieties adapt well to the differing amounts of rainfall as well as temperature. In cold winters oaks can survive wide extremes of temperatures, from the single digits into the 100's without an issue.
