quercis macrocarpa, Burr Oak

I planted 100 two foot tall burr oaks in a small tree nursery I started last
spring.  Even though burr oak is not native to Delaware I thought I would
give them a try anyway. I also planted 100 Dawn Redwoods and they have
turned out to be a very fast growing tree. 400 other assorted trees were
also planted last spring and I hope to add another 5 or 6 hundred this
spring. I plan on buying a 44 inch tree spade when the first of these trees
gets to saleable transplanting size and a larger tree spade several years
after that. I am thinking seriously about growing Japanese Maples, too.
Believe it or not we have 3 live oaks growing here in Delaware about 15
miles away. They are one foot in diameter and 45 feet tall. I collect
several hundred acorns and planted them  a month or so ago. We are just a
bit north of live oak so it will be interesting to see how these seedlings
turn out.

The way I keep them straight is, the white oaks have leaves with very
rounded tips, the red oaks are very pointed.
