Planting a tree is a wonderful way to honor a cherished person in your life. Whether it is to welcome the birth of a child, commemorate a milestone birthday, or to honor the passing of a loved one, planting a tree is a beautiful gesture. A symbol of strength and endurance, there are almost 60 varieties of Oak trees throughout the country. We have the unique opportunity to pick an Oak tree which is well suited for that special someone, and to grow in their specific area of the country. Many of these trees have the chance to grow into a tree 80-feet in height with a canopy spread of over 100-feet. It is an excellent shade tree where wildlife abounds in its branches and the shadows below.
