Bur Oak


The Bur Oak tree, also known as the Mossycup Oak, is regarded as one of the most majestic oaks native to North America. The bur oak's scientific epithet, macrocarpa, means "large fruit" which references its large acorns. These acorns are an important food source for wildlife. These trees typically live 200 to 300 years, sometimes even reaching 400 years and grow from 70-100 feet in height!
