Northern red oak is one of our favorites. Our passion for red oak is rooted in the love towards this land and the lives she fosters. Every red oak tree supports a local ecosystem.

If one is privileged to own or manage a property that can sustain large trees, consider red oaks that faithfully filter the groundwater, firmly stabilize the soils, and relentlessly feed the wildlife.

Note: white oaks rain down their acorns every year. Red oaks only do it twice year. They don't litter as much as their white counterparts.  

 About native oaks:

A single native acorn carries blessings from thousands of years of genetic heritage. Oaks and chestnuts were once standing side by side in the Eastern North America forests; they were dominant tree covers. The chestnuts have been wiped out by 1950. Oaks have since taken the place of the chestnuts and become king of the forest. Yet, the native oak population of North America is diminishing from coast to coast.  In British Colombia alone, the Garry oaks' habitat has decreased by 95% in the last two centuries.

To prevent the history of American chestnut from repeating, one needs to act proactively to sustain our native oaks. Plant an oak tree today; you will be a true hero for many generations to come.
