The Common or English Oak has been a staple of our forests for years, and is one of the most common species found in the UK. If you’re looking for a majestic native tree that’s been grown as nature intended and hardy to all parts of the country, then this might be a fantastic choice
As Common Oak matures, it forms a wide canopy that gives dappled shade to the ground below. Dark green leaves appear early in May, alongside short yellow catkins that hang below the branches. After 40 years, Common Oak starts to produce acorns in the autumn, providing food for plenty of wild animals. Around this time, the leaves also transition to a deep red-brown.
This Oak is grown to be as hardy as possible, they’ll thrive anywhere in the UK on all types of soil, and in either full sun or partial shade. They’re tolerant of salt spray and air pollution, so coastal and town regions suit it fine. If you are planting in a garden, bear in mind the eventual size of the tree; as they can mature to up to a final height of 40 metres, you’ll need around 12 metres of space for proper root growth.
