The Southern Live Oak is our choice of Oak Tree for Houston planting because it not only adapts and performs well in hot climates with clay-type soils, but also looks stunning on display. It’s a true Oak, so you’re getting the weight, stability and strength of the type of tree that’s the benchmark for sturdiness. Plant Live Oaks in rows to get a privacy wall or shady property barrier that provides immense protection and beauty.
The Live Oak grows well in clay type soils and tolerates extreme temperatures well. The wide and tall canopy is a very deep green that contrasts well with other plants and trees commonly grown in Houston. Homeowners and landscapers alike use this tree in both tropical or desert type landscapes for added shade protection and even as a focal point for the entire landscape. This is one tree you can’t go wrong with!
