The Willow Oak Tree, or Quercus phellos as it is also known, is a fast-growing, medium-to-large tree that is loved by wildlife. Growing to around 40 to 75 feet tall, it produces a rounded crown, green narrow foliage, and yellow-green catkins in spring. Willow Oak is an adaptable and easy-to-grow tree. 

The large rounded crown of the Willow Oak Tree makes it an ideal specimen for providing shade. The Willow Oak is a native deciduous tree and winter hardy in zones 5 to 9. Often used commercially for large spaces, Willow Oak is also well suited to large gardens. Both birds and mammals favor this tree for its food and habitat.

Willow Oak Tree Care

The Willow Oak Tree grows best in full sun. It prefers a neutral to acidic soil that is moist but free draining. To support its vigorous growth, young specimens will benefit from an application of a balanced fertilizer in early spring. Water frequently to help the tree establish in the first two growing seasons. Mature trees can tolerate some dry spells. As a potentially tall tree, care should be taken when selecting a planting site to avoid any structural or overhead issues down the line.

Maintaining a central leader from planting onward will help encourage a strong structure. Prune during winter when the tree is dormant, and remove lower branches that compete with the leader. 

Willow Oak Tree Spacing

When fully grown, the Willow Oak Tree can reach 40 to 75 feet tall with a crown 25 to 50 feet wide. If planting to form a line, you can space each tree around 40 feet apart to give the crowns room to mature.

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.
