Can I grow live oaks as part of a tree farm? If so, how far apart should I plant them?

Dear Rene,

You can certainly grow live oaks as part of a tree farm! Oak trees are majestic and long lived, though the process of growing them from acorn to tower is going to be a long one. Spacing for oak trees is vital, and at a minimum, you should try to give them 40 feet.

The San Francisco Chronicle has some fantastic information on the spacing for oaks, though this is clearly for more urban locations.
