    Great points, Diane! I love the majesty of oaks, but yes, best to give them the space to do their thing.

    think about where you will plant this...I have one in my front yard close to the house and I clean up after it all year! The leaves start falling late summer in clusters, the pollen in the spring is off the charts, the tiny acorns get caught in the spaces between the boards on my porch. Beautiful tree but keep it far away from your house!
