Common Name: Swamp Chestnut Oak
The leaves of this oak are leathery with the underside covered in soft hairs, similar to a Chestnut. They turn a beautiful scarlet-red in fall. It is magnificent in old age. This oak is fairly fast-growing with scaly bark and large sweet acorns loved by livestock and wildlife. It can survive continuous flooding and naturally grows in wet areas. Oaks have been made easier to transplant with fast growth rates because of new root pruning and fertilization techniques.
