Bur Oak

bur oak is a majestic tree of all tall-grass prairie that once covered central North America. It grows best in deep limestone soils of riverbanks and valleys but it will adapt to many different environments. It has a long taproot which makes it hard to transplant but also very drought-tolerant.  It is also fast growing and long-lived. But Oak is noted for its very large leaves and acorns:  the leaves are from one-half to one foot long, and acorns can be as large as 2 inches long and wide, enclosed in a cup with fringe on the edge. It casts deep shade
