I saw this in the paper yesterday. I missed it last year, but the year before I was able to get the trees. I will be there to get them next month.

Shumard oak is one of the largest species in the southern red oak group. It is a fast-growing tree used widely for commercial lumber, interior trim, cabinetry and furniture. Shumard oak is also an excellent shade tree because of its broad, rounded canopy.

The fruit is an important component of the diets of numerous species of songbirds, wild turkeys, waterfowl, white-tailed deer, and various species of squirrels . White-tailed deer utilize the twigs and leaves for winter browse as well.

The wood is used commercially for cabinets, furniture, floors, and lumber.
