About Us

 

THE NAME

Bur Oak 

Bur Oak Resources is named firstly after the Mighty Bur Oak tree.  Sometimes spelled Burr or Burl the name refers to the Bur Oak tree (we will save you from trying to pronounce the scientific name).  The Bur Oak tree was chosen to serve as our namesake for it's outstanding qualities.   The Bur Oak tree is majestic and makes an outstanding ornamental tree. It is not all good looks however. The Bur Oak tree is one of the most tolerant of urban conditions of the white oaks, and is one of the fastest-growing of the group.  It is also a fire-resistant tree, and possesses significant drought resistance by virtue of a long taproot. New trees may, after two to three years of growth, possess a 1–2 m deep taproot.  It is one of the most massive oaks with a trunk diameter of up to 3 m (10 ft) and growing up to 30 m (100 ft), occasionally 37 m (120 ft) in height.
