Where can i get Fig or Oak trees?

Postby LiL'Muggos » Mon Jan 12, 2009 1:53 pm

I just moved onto 100 acres it is mostly cleared. It can get very windy I also would like some shade. Was wondering if anyone could tell me which trees are best to use Fig, Oak or both and where i can get some from. I am putting an old Queenslander onto it and it has a long drive way up to the hill, i would like some trees lineing the drive also, any ideas???
Cheers!

To start with could you give us your general location so folks can better understand your climate?

I can post you about 6 million acorns?! I think there are probably different kinds of oak trees though, Mum has 3 large ones but I wouldn't have any idea what type they are. They're just huge oak trees to me!

Oaks are very easy to propogate from acorns. Just put a bunch of them an inch or two under the surface in a pile of sharp sand and they'll strike like weeds.
