Think oak trees are slow growing? Think again! When you give most oaks what they need to thrive - shelter from deer browse and aggressive weed control to simulate the beneficial effects of fire - you won't believe how fast oak trees can grow.
Still want even faster growth and early acorn production? Plant hybrid oaks! In nature oaks of different species frequently cross pollinate to create hybrids that have some of the characteristics of both parent trees. Oak experts have long noticed two traits of many hybrids: They grow faster than either parent species, and the begin producing acorns at an earlier age.
Many nurseries specialize in growing and selling hybrid oaks. One of our favorites is Mossy Oak's Nativ Nurseries.
Now hybrid oaks do cost more; it take a lot more effort on the part of the nursery to locate hybrid trees and monitor their performance over time so they can assure you of improved productivity.
It only makes sense to protect your investment in hybrid oaks with the best tree tube on the market, the Tubex CombiTube Tree Tube, from Wilson Forestry Supply. If you have any questions about this product, please contact our expert sales staff today.
