About Interior Live Oak

Interior Live Oak (Quercus wislizeni) is a small- to medium-sized evergreen from the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada, where it grows 30 – 75 feet tall, 1 – 3 feet in diameter, and can live for up to 200 years. When open-grown, the crown of Interior Live Oak becomes dense and broadly rounded, with foliage often reaching the ground (typically, these trees are at least as broad as they are tall).

Leaves are mostly flat, oblong to elliptical, dark green, leathery, and 1 – 1.5 inches long. Acorns are conical and slender, reaching lengths of 1.5 inches. Thanks to its thick, furrowed bark and sprouting ability, Interior Live Oak is fairly fire-resistant, as well as drought and shade tolerant — a great oak for those living in a hot, dry climate.


About Jonsteen's Bonsai Specials

Every so often, our bonsai master-in-residence, Will, hand-selects trees from the nursery that catch his eye for their unique bonsai qualities. These are truly one-of-a-kind specimens — the tree pictured here is the tree you'll get!


About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!
