Chinkapin Oak Tree (Quercus muehlenbergii) - 1 Gallon Pot
A very attractive North American native, the Chinkapin Oak is a magnificent, large-growing and long-lived member of the white oak family. It is a fast grower for an oak developing a broad, open rounded crown that can reach 40 to 60 feet tall and 50 to 70 feet wide at maturity. In the wild it is most often found growing in dry sites but trees growing in moist loams grow faster. It has lush foliage consisting of large and attractive shiny green leaves measuring from 4 to 8 inches long having coarse marginal teeth or mini lobes. The leaves resemble those of a chestnut tree, whose nut is sometimes called a chinquapin, hence the common name of this oak having sweet and edible acorns. Just make sure to process the nuts before consuming by boiling or leaching out the tannins. Insignificant flowers occur in spring in the form of catkins which are followed by rounded, brown acorns wearing straw-colored caps. The branch structure and light gray, rough and irregularly fissured bark make for a nice silhouette during the winter months. As is with most oak trees, the Chinkapin Oak has many benefits to wildlife, supporting butterflies and moths, birds and mammals. Highly adaptable to many soil types and moist to dry conditions, the Chinkapin Oak is ideal for use as a large shade tree in the sunny landscape or in groupings or groves in fields or for forestation and reclamation projects.
