The Shumard Oak is relatively easy to transplant though for easiest transplanting we recommend planting the seedlings or small trees in our root bags.
Lower branches on Shumard Oaks need to be shortened then removed early when planting this as a street or parking lot tree since they will droop toward the ground as the tree grows older, requiring removal to allow for vehicular traffic. Leave the more upright, spreading branches to create more clearance beneath. Lower branches can be left on trees grown in more open areas to allow for full development of the picturesque, low branching, open form. Multi-trunked Shumard specimens can reportedly break up at about 25-years-old due to poor attachment so maintain the central leader. Leaf color runs from dark green in summer to yellow-brown to red in fall and hang on thru winter.
