Oaks of the Wild West

Oak Varieties We Carry

We are located in South Eastern Arizona and understand what it takes to get Oaks to survive in our harsh climates. Originally from Texas, we later moved to Arizona, so we have experience in how to grow tress in a wide variety of climates.

Other Oak 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. We also have a small selection of Ajo Oak (Quercus ajoensis) collected in Southern Arizona.

New this year are collected Quercus Germana acorns. Currently we only have small seedlings, but expect to have plants for sale next year.

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 temperatures well into the teen's and handle the other extreme range of high temperatures into the 100's without an issue.

How we grow our trees

We do not force feed our trees to push them to create fast excessive growth. This helps to ensure that our trees have an established root base for their age.

As a part of the growing process, we transplant trees into larger containers as they grown to help prevent tree root girdling.
