Can I grow a Century Tree seedling where I live?

The growing region for live oaks -- the species of the Texas A&M Century Tree -- is from USDA Hardiness Zone 8 (light orange) to Zone 10 (pink).

These areas, which are roughly 400 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, have the perfect weather conditions to support this variety of tree. Winter temperatures north of Zone 8 are typically too cold for live oak trees, and they usually will not survive those harsh winter weather conditions.

While we will ship Century Tree seedlings to areas in Zone 7, we cannot guarantee their survival in this particular zone, or any zones further north.
