Nuttall Oak Trees-4-6 ft
This red oak is a sure-fire winner for ducks, deer, and folks who don’t think they have a green thumb! Nuttall oaks are easy to establish, and grow like a weed as a young tree. Even better, Nuttalls can tolerate poorly drained sites more so than any other red oak. Wait there’s more! Many of our Nuttalls don’t even think about dropping until December, which means one of the highest carb acorns (about 45%) are on the ground when ducks and bucks need energy the most.
Deer people: Plant Nuttalls in the back corner of your favorite big late season food plot, or along their favorite trail leading to that plot.
Duckers: Establish Nuttalls in areas that can be flooded most every winter. Remember all duck holes need an occasional break from flooding. Call our MOLES staff for more help on establishing and managing oaks in your timber holes. Nuttall oak is definitely on our top five list of favorite oaks!
