About the Bur x Gambel Oak “Early Drop”:
You can have acorns, fast! BurGambel is an incredible tree. This hybrid is a unique cross between Bur Oak and Gambel Oak, both in the white oak family, and have sweet acorns produced at an early age. This hybrid cross with Bur Oak will still produce a very large tree, but smaller than our native Bur, with lots of acorns. If you like the sound of this tree, look at our English Wide Oak also! BurGambel has reportedly started acorn production as early as 4 feet in height. As with all hybrids, acorn production usually starts at a much earlier age because of a biological vigor caused by the hybridization. This tree is from Utah Zone 4/5 and is very winter hardy.
