Fast Growing Hybrid Oak-Good Acorn Production

Our McDaniel hybrids are grown from seed from the grafted parent. At our farm, these naturally cross back to the bur oak making a more vigorous hybrid compared to the western strain of this cross. Burenglish oak transplants well and grows in a wide variety of soil types. Growth rate averages 2-4 ft. per year. Acorn production begins between 5-10 years of age. Some of our customers have reported fruiting in 3 years on 5 ft tall trees. Symmetrical crown eventually develops into a dense, round or oval shape. Leaves can be large and clean of foliar diseases. Probably the best acorn producer in our white oak groups.
