The Shumard Oak Tree is always lovely but puts on a spectacular fall display. Also known as Quercus shumardii, this deciduous tree stands up to 80 feet tall and 50 to 60 feet across. The foliage measures 4 to 8 inches long and 4 to 5 inches wide and has the traditional deeply lobed oak shape. Leaves exhibit dark green throughout the spring and summer. The leaves turn vibrant shades of red and orange by fall before dropping. The Shumard Oak Tree produces sizable acorns that add to the visual appeal and are a food source for various animals.

The broad, open crown becomes rounded as the tree matures. The Shumard Oak Tree is pest and disease resistant, ensuring its longevity. This Oak tree grows well in environments that are challenging for many trees. Use this beauty as a shade tree or to line a street.  

Shumard Oak Tree Care

Plant this Oak tree in full sun. The Shumard Oak Tree is not picky about soil pH and can handle alkaline, neutral, and acidic soil. The soil should be fertile, moist, and well drained. Young trees need consistent water. Established trees are drought tolerant but appreciate water during a dry period.

Prune Shumard Oak Tree in the winter when it is dormant. Regular pruning is necessary for the first few years to establish a balanced and pleasing shape.

Shumard Oak Tree Spacing

Space Shumard Oak Trees 50 feet apart, center on center, to create a row of trees. Plant trees about 60 feet back from buildings and clear of utility lines. The area underneath the canopy is excellent for a shade-loving ground cover and spring-blooming bulbs.

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.
