Except it might be the Nuttall Oak. Can anyone tell?
I prefer White Oak because a leaf from a Quercus Alba is on the Great and Holy Seal of Memphis.
The tree hopeful came up in my back yard late last summer, and in February I moved it to the front. My neighbors wondered why I planted a stick. But it came alive and has looked healthy all spring and summer, except that it hasn't grown an inch.
White or Nuttall, it's my first step in returning my yard to forest.
