Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

The Burr Oaks best planted in zones 3-8. It can grow anywhere except the most southern portions of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama and the whole of Florida. It likes moist and fertile soil but thrives on thin soils on rocky bluffs in full and partial sun. It has a high tolerance for calcareous soils and alkaline soils. This Oak has been known to survive fires as a seedling and as full grown trees. The tree is most suitable for large lawns, on golf courses, in parks, and on large islands. Its deep roots can penetrate to lower water tables in times of drought, making it very drought resistant.
