When Is The Best Time To Plant An Oak Tree

in the UK?

The best time of year to plant an oak tree in the UK is between Autumn and Spring, with March being ideal for planting. Oaks are frost hardy trees so will thrive throughout most of the British Isles – however they do prefer a sheltered location away from strong winds. They also need well-drained soil rich in nutrients which makes them perfect for areas that have heavy rainfall or damp soils, such as Wales and Scotland.
