Bio urn with Red Oak

The red oak is a deciduous tree that in nature reaches 30-40 m in height, but planted in a garden is usually shorter. It grows quickly and tolerates different types of soil. At the age of 10 years, the red oak can reach a height of 5-6 m. It can live up to 500 years.

It carries the name of the colour of its leaves in autumn – bright red. During the spring and summertime the leaves are coloured in green. They have a characteristic elongated shape with 7 or 11 branches. It blooms in May with yellow flowers and loves sunny places.

While choosing the Red Oak’s planting place it is very important to keep in mind that in time it will become very big. This plant prefers very bright places. The tree, although in general does not demand much when it comes to the soil, still prefers well-drained chemical soil. Only wetlands and calcareous soils adversely affect the plant. The red oak is resistant to frost, shade, drought, but still needs moderate watering.
