Bimundor Oak

Tree Description:

94-20   Bimundor oak, (the oak of two worlds) is not found in nature. The ranges of the two parent species are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. North American white oak (Q. alba) pollinated an isolated cultivated specimen of the upright European pedunculate oak (Q. robur ‘Fastigiata’) to produce this hybrid. While the European parent was narrowly upright, our trees are growing normally with an open habit. The parent species each are among the longest-living oaks on their respective continents.
