The White Oaks

The White Oak, Quercus alba, is one of the most handsome and majestic trees. Our stand of white oaks, located in front of The Fearrington House Restaurant, is between 100- and 150-years-old. In the forest, white oaks are found in naturally occurring groves, since they are difficult to transplant. We believe Fearrington’s grove was indeed formed naturally.

White oaks have a vibrant fall color, and the renowned professor, Dr. Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home, lists the native oak as the number one beneficial tree for caterpillars for feeding nesting birds.
