Quercus 'Kindred Spirit'

We have an ancient swamp white oak on our property that commands attention from every vantage point. It not only lures all to gather under its massive limbs when the summer heat gets intense and all marvel at its gentle but immense spirit. Alas, few people plant these grand trees anymore, primarily because space won't allow. Kindred Spirit is a hybrid of sWamp White Oak Quercus biclor and English Oak Quercus robur, faturing the durability of the former and the foliage of the latter. It has a narrow fastiigate form and mature trees should be about 35-40' tall and 6-10' wide. Shipping 4' trees in 1.5 gallon pots..
