Hello, I have these 3 large oak trees that drop accorns and sprout each year. All green but this one below is slightly different. I think it is still a red oak seedling but leaf color is yellow, I wish stays this color but most likely will turn green next a few weeks. Do you know if there are any albino red oaks out there?

Don't know of any albino oaks, but your seedling could simply be displaying some extreme nutrient deficiency. What kind of medium are you growing that in?

Soil pH, alkalinity, and minor element levels can all contribute. Even the pH of the water you use can affect plants - which is often much higher than the soils in a landscape.
