I've got six different species on my hill (Q. agrifolia, chrysolepis, kelloggii, cornelius-mulleri, john-tuckeri, and turbinella, the last three being shrub oaks). The black oak is growing extremely slowly, but that's expected.

Whoah, I'm very curious where you got a 15 gallon Bristlecone! Hell, I'd take a 1 gallon, fiver, ANYTHING!
Or did you grow it from seed?
Chalfant Tree Farm right up the road from my home carries 1, 5 15 & 25 gallon BCP's as well as many other varieties of local pines. Moderately priced as well. Got a 15 gallon one just last month and planted it in our front yard where he can look up at his many relatives directly behind our home.
Nice job Greg on the planting.
Over and out.

Mine have at least 6 inches of duff built up under them over the years, and are set back from the heat...oak...nice understory of Japanese Maples that no longer get the wind burn they used to, and they get great color now.
