    Horrible time with Oaks...

    I've planted several oaks now and had no success at all with the bare root variety...what gives?

    I've followed the instructions to the letter, I've only gotten two Red Oaks to live..and both were eaten by rabbits/deer.

    Is it me..my soil or just something about an oak?

    I've had poor luck with really small xsplants when it comes to Oaks. The best luck I have is potted from the nursery or grow from acorns in pots till 2 or 3 years old. All I have is anecdotal.

    RE: Horrible time with Oaks...

    I've had similar experiences with bare root oaks.

    I've successfully relocated some of the dozens of wild red oaks and pin oaks that pop up all over my yard in the spring, but you have to catch them real small (or get the whole tap root). All the ones I've kept have been repeatedly eaten!

    I'd look for small potted or tubed seedlings. The only oaks to survive in my yard (with protection from deer, my dogs and other pests) are a Swamp White Oak and a Black Oak (purchased potted), and a Post Oak (purchased in a tube).

    Pertaining to growing them in pots. If they are grown in a pot for several growing seasons before being planted in the ground, should the tree be brought in every winter?

    No, but don't let the soil freeze.
