The Pin Oak is a balanced deciduous tree with ascending horizontal branches that puts on a stunning and colorful foliage display. Also known as Quercus palustris or Swamp Spanish Oak, this tree makes an excellent shade tree. The deeply lobed leaves are glossy green in the spring and summer but transition into russet, bronze, or red hues during the fall. This tree is large and elegant, and once it has had time to acclimate, the Pin Oak is also very low maintenance.

Use this oak tree to create a border or a focal point. The stately branches look stunning when this tree is used to line a street or driveway. The upright growth habit and naturally rounded canopy maintain a nice, natural shape. This tree will immediately become a home and hang out for birds and small animals, and it grows as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 8.

Pin Oak Care

The Pin Oak requires full sun to reach its full potential. Plants grown in low light may have a difficult time acclimating. Soil should be rich, acidic, and well-drained. Water weekly for the first year, but the Pin Oak will not need as much care by the second year. Although, be prepared to step in and give the tree a drink during a drought, at least for the first few years.

Dead or damaged branches can be removed at any time of year, although it may be easier to trim the tree in the fall or winter after the foliage has dropped. The Pin Oak is not a heavy feeder, so it is not necessary to fertilize this tree.

Pin Oak Spacing

The Pin Oak is a large, upright tree. The branches can spread 40 to 60 feet wide and reach 50 to 70 feet tall. Plant this tree at least 15 to 20 feet away from buildings or other trees.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
