Quercus saturnalius

Common name: The Holiday Oak

Non-native plant

One of our more magical offerings for the winter season. I mean this one glows in the dark and makes kids smile. We're offering this as a PICKUP ONLY on our online store and will make them to order. Bur Oak + Lights=Awesome. We're making them from our old field stock that is no longer salable, cutting them flush to the ground and setting a steel spike that can be driven into the ground. The tree is fully compostable when the season is done and the lights are LED and reusable. We ask that you place it proudly and tell your friends that even as a decoration oaks are amazing!

Sold Nov-Dec.  Limited availability.
