Laurel oak (Quercus laurifolia)
Laurel Oak is usually found on sandy soils, quite often along the edges of rivers and swamps. Its leaves are semi-deciduous, which means that the current year’s leaves remain on the tree while those of the previous year will fall. The leaves are small, 2-4 inches long, pointed, and sometimes have rather unevenly-lobed edges.
Acorns are small (1/2 inch long), dark colored, with a flat saucer-shaped cup that is covered with hairy scales.
Laurel oak grows rapidly, maturing in about 50 years. On good sites the tree may reach 100 feet in height and 3-4 feet in diameter.
Price listed is for 100 seedlings.
