Regal Prince Oak Trees, a great tree for limited space


The Regal Prince Oak is a cross between a Swamp White Oak and the Columnar English Oak, and can grow up to 50 to 60 feet tall and a width anywhere from 15 to 20 feet. It has a stronger as well as fuller branching structure than other trees in the same category. The two-toned green leaves create a beautiful contrast. These leaves turn yellow and orange in the fall.

The Regal Prince is resistant to mildew, and is most used for the excellent columnar form. This tree often planted in rows to provide wind breaking, screening to block unsightly views, or just to provide a formal look to the landscape. The dense foliage can help muffle traffic sounds.

This tree is perfect for narrow or confined spaces. When planted alone, or in rows, these trees have perfect vertical design.

The do’s and don’ts of pruning your trees

Blooming tree and houses

Pruning tips from Arbor Hills – Most pruning should be confined to removal of broken, rubbing, damaged or dead branches. Sometimes pruning is necessary to elevate tree branches over a sidewalk, street, roof, or other structure.

Tree thinning: It is generally not necessary to thin a tree out. Some people believe it is good for the tree because more air passes through the crown. This practice is sometimes known as “lion tailing” and can leave the tree open to stress during the hot Nebraska months.
