The Empire Oak is bred from our genetically superior specimen trees at our South Texas Farm. Using controlled genetic techniques, we have created a stronger, faster growing, and more consistent looking Live Oak that is perfect for your southern landscape.

Branching Angles

The branching habits lend themselves to create stronger trees better able to withstand strong winds and other severe weather situations as well as an aesthetically pleasing look and shape.

Growth Rates

The Empire Live Oaks have shown a significantly faster growth rate at a younger age than some named varieties on the market today to provide shade more quickly to the home owner or business that uses them in their landscape.

Similar Form

The uniform habit and growth rates will provide a more consistent look to multiple plantings over time. Whether it is 2 trees in the front lawn or a mile long stately row of oaks in a commercial setting, they will tend to be better matched than a group of seedling oaks from unknown sources.
