About Leather Oak
Leather Oak (Quercus durata) is a shrub-like evergreen, growing 3 – 10 feet tall throughout California’s Klamath and Coast Ranges, as well as in the lower reaches of the Sierra Nevada. Though small, Leather Oak’s smooth, gray branches are intricately and beautifully laced beneath a rounded, tangled canopy. Leaves are convex to the point of curling, leathery, oblong to elliptical, and anywhere from 0.5 – 1.25 inches long, coming to a sharp point at their tips. Acorns are stoutly egg-shaped and can reach 1 inch in length. This is a great tree for anyone drawn to the oak form but short on space.
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!

Seedling Size Chart: Medium
Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
