English Oak Hedge Plants Description

The classic English Oak is a hugely popular, deciduous, native species. It features multi-lobed deep green leaves on short stems which grow in clusters on its gently twisting branches. It provides rich autumn colour when its dark green foliage turns yellow and burnt orange and begins to fall to the ground.

Quercus robur trees are also a food source and natural habitat to more species of British wildlife than an other native tree, especially when acorn production begins. Even the fallen leaves, when breaking down into leaf mould, support a myriad of insect and fungi species whilst the acorns provide food for woodland mammals such as deer, squirrels and even the oocasional badger!

English Oaks have a spreading form and would be expected to reach a height and spread of 10 x 6m over 20 years unless specifically grown as a hedge. English Oak will grow well in all but the wettest of soils, even being lime tolerant, and will grow in most locations, sheltered or exposed, except deep shade. As a tree it can eventually reach up to 40 metres in height, but this can take between 20 and 50 years to achieve. English Oak plants are however perfect for hedging as they produce tap roots early in life, which means they do not steal moisture and nutrients from the surrounding plants.

Prices shown are the price per plant. Recommended planting densities are shown but this is very much a matter of choice and you can increase or reduce the density depending on your level of patience. See also our Advice section on Planting Density.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

English Oak does not require much pruning but any wayward shoots should be trimmed whilst the plant is dormant in late autumn.
