Quercus muehlenbergii
Quercus muehlenbergii
Common Name: Chinkapin Oak
A rarity among oaks, this specimen is useful for growing in limestone soils. The foliage is attractive with large toothed leaves like those of a Chestnut. Leaves are green and shiny, turning to a yellow-orange in fall, a different color for an oak. On old specimens, the bark is bright gray with gorgeous branch structure. Oaks are easier to transplant and have a faster growth rate due to air root pruning and fertilization techniques.
