Can someone please suggest where i can buy the largest possible oak or pecan trees so we dont have to wait for years to get shade on our new home. Is it 50 gallons, 100 gallons, 200 gallons, and can these large trees survive after planting.

The home is long from being ready, i just want to check out my options. Thank you much for any suggestion.

I did some google and found it here: Price List - Verdant Tree Farm - Houston Live Oaks & Palm Trees

Much more than i could afford.

SunBelt Trees. I got about 19 trees for them all 45 or 60 Gallons and then hire someone to build my beds and plant them. I saved about 10K by doing it by myself. Got a quote of 14K for the same job. Rippoffs

RCW Nursery in NW Houston specializes in trees, has been in operation for thirty years or so. They are not cheap but they are the real deal.

RCW Nurseries :: Welcome

Added: While the better nurseries are more expensive, I believe they warranty their trees. Large trees are a considerable investment and require careful moving and transplanting. Best left to the pros.

Sunbelt won't give you warranty but is really hard to KILL a tree. Digg a hole, fill it with water, let the water soak in, repeat same water steps, plant the tree, water them good for the next 3 weeks, done.
