Product Description

Quercus pontica

Quercus pontica, commonly known as the Pontine Oak or Black Sea Oak, is a species of oak native to the Black Sea region, particularly northern and western Turkey, Georgia, and southern Ukraine. It belongs to the Fagaceae family and is known for its resilience and adaptability to a wide range of environmental conditions.

The Pontine Oak is a medium-sized deciduous tree that can reach a height of approximately 20-25 meters. It has a dense, rounded crown and dark green, leathery, glossy leaves with serrated margins. In autumn, the foliage turns shades of red to brown, creating a stunning display of autumn colors.

This oak species is valued for its drought resistance and tolerance to soil salinity, making it suitable for growth in many coastal areas and challenging environmental conditions. It is often used for afforestation, park and garden creation, as well as timber production.

Cultivation Tips: Here are some cultivation tips for the Pontine Oak:

  1. Location: Plant the Pontine Oak in an area that receives full sun or light shade. It is drought-tolerant but prefers well-drained, organic-rich soil.

  2. Watering: Water the plant regularly during drought periods, especially during the first year after planting. Once established, the Pontine Oak requires less watering and can withstand moderate drought periods.

  3. Fertilization: Fertilize the plant with a slow-release fertilizer in spring to promote healthy, vigorous growth.

  4. Pruning: Prune the Pontine Oak only to remove damaged or misshapen branches. Avoid excessive pruning as it may compromise the plant's structure.

  5. Pest and Disease Control: Monitor the plant for any signs of pests or diseases and treat them promptly with appropriate insecticides or fungicides.
