Where and how can I purchase blackjack oak trees (quercus marilandica)?

Are you looking to purchase them online?  Or are you looking to
purchase them at nurseries in your area? Are you looking to purchase
seeds sapling or full grown trees?

Specification would get your question answered quicker.

I have no preference for online purchase. I haven't checked local
nurseries, but am assuming that they're not very popular around here
as a landscape tree and wouldn't be available in this vicinity. Should
I start looking in the local nurseries? I live in the Trenton, NJ area
(Lawrenceville, NJ (08648)in Mercer County. I would like a sapling, as
straight as possible. A grown blackjack oak might not lend itself to
the wrapping that is done in transporting trees and I have no idea of
the transplant survival rate for the grown tree. I'd be interested in
knowing full grown availability, however, if cost, survivablity. etc.,
make sense.
My reasons for wanting a bjo are: 1)I like trees with dark green
leaves; 2)it's a small tree; 3)I understand it grows in sandy soil,
but also in undrained, barren soil and we have barren clay here; 4)I
remember them in Ocean County, NJ, where I was raised, which has
plenty of sand and gravel.

Hi Bye!

I've found two nurseries in New Jersey that claim to sell Q.
marilandica.  Hopefully one or both will be close enough to you to
make a trip worthwhile - you could also contact them to see if they

The Dawson Corporation Native Plant Nursery

Pinelands Nursery Supply
NOTE: This is a wholesaler nursery, and doesn't normally sell to
individuals.  However, if you can't get to Dawson Corp., I'd give them
a call to see if they've sold any bjo's to local nurseries.

I found these two from the Green Industry Yellow Pages (,
which I got to from an ad on a page about Q. marilandica.  I found it
rather difficult to find places offering the bjo for sale (as I'm sure
you did), and hope the nurseries listed above will help.
