An interesting evergreen oak, Holm Oak is a conical shaped tree with dark green foliage. It has attractive smooth darkish-grey bark. Early summer marks the arrival of new leaves, which are a silvery-white colour before turning green. Furry golden-yellow coloured catkins are of interest and typical of oak trees, acorns will be formed.
An attractive tree which will tolerate salt spray and strong winds, and is quite frequently planted as a hedge or in avenues in coastal towns. Expect a final height of 28m (93ft), so unless trimmed, better suited to the larger garden.
Holm Oak is supplied at a height of between 1.25m in a 7L container, which means that the tree has an already established root system and therefore this tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or root balled trees. Message card included at no additional cost if required.
Should you require more than one tree then you may want to look at our WHOLESALE OAK TREE section where a single tree from a pack of 100 costs around 82p. Click OAK HEDGING for the obvious hedging section.
Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
