Default Will it come back?? Spanish Oak.

So this big red oak crashed down a couple weeks ago. Before that is was Huge (for the hill country) and mostly full of fresh leaves.
I am probably just going to cut it off flush with the ground and protect and water it.
What do you think? Will it come back?

I agree, went from full bloom to this in 2 weeks?
I had one in the front yard that "died". I burned that stump to about a foot below the ground last year. Now I have a sapling coming back from the root that I missed.

She is cut off and I pushed out what I could with the tractor.
There is some live tissue on the top side.
I'm gonna burn the dead wood while watering the live.
Then fill with compost and water again.
Will it work?

I'm skeptical but maybe I'll learn something new. Now if we were talking hackberry, mesquite, or crape myrtle I'd for sure agree.

Yeah, big root system is the key to super fast regrowth.
We shall see on this one. Might be a 2 or 3 yr thread.

I vote it lives. I had the most pitiful looking pecan tree when we bought our place. I tried to nurse it back. It kept braking until not much was left. My wife tried to convince me numerous times to cut it all down. 2 years ago I cut it down to about a foot tall, and got rid of bad/rotten wood. It had a fungus, heart rot I think? I treated it and babied it. Last year it grew but kind of funky. I trimmed it up last winter and this year it looks amazing and healthy and it is about 8-9 ft tall from 1 ft 2 years ago.

Tree died, you cut it off at the ground, burned the stump out and you are expecting the tree to grow back?

Must be a Phoenix Oak

If it has any shot at all you will need to put a heavy duty exclusion cage around it to protect any regrowth from the deer eating it.

We tend to get a lot of Spanish oaks coming up from what I would call root sprouts. The originator tree dies, and they come up around it. If your fire didn稚 damage the root structure, what the hell....give it some time and see what happens.

So, the stump burned for 3 nights. I hit it every night with my leaf blower to blow off the ash and get the stump burnig hot again. All the dead wood was burned away. Then I took my chainsaw and gnarled a bunch of the remaining char off the live section.
Put a sack of potting soil in the hole. Filled the hole 3/4 up with deer manure. Then leveled it off with soured alfalfa hay and watered it good.

Bwaaaaahahaha!!!
8 days since the fire died and she is sprouting back

I never doubted you. Anything is possible if you get no out of your heart. Here is what I call my Charlie Brown tree. It was a little taller than I said I cut it off at. But it's actually 10-12 foot tall now too.

Oh man fulmer, I would be real tempted to drive a long t-post in the ground on the good side of that tree and tie it off up high. Then I would remove about half that dead wood with a chisel and hammer. Then I would set some red hot charcoal in that hole in the bottom, just a couple at a time. Burn that dead part down into the ground about 6 or 8 inches.
Get that stuff out of the way so that new bark can come all the way around.
But that is just me.
Either way, it looks to be growing well.

Sorry but that stump don't look burnt to me, looks like a cut off stump that is sprouting back.

It was cut off at the ground, flush. Then I burned it all that I could, I put the fire on the dead wood and let it burn as much as it would into the live section.
Then I dug a little trench on the top side and washed it good to let the sunlight hit it.

Not sure, it was pretty well dead when we moved in, and didn't really put out any pecans. I'm pretty sure it was a native though. Thought about grafting it after it recovers some more.

The ones in the pasture, I pick up the dead pieces with my loader forks and scratch the stump off at the ground with my box blade. Then let the tree grow back if it wants to.
I just hate dealing with stumps when I am mowing or driving around .
Trees anywhere close to the house I will go the extra mile for.
Thanks for the thumbs up.
