    I can not believe how healthy my trees turned out. I am not much of a green thumb at all but these trees took right off without any problem.

Description

Chestnut Oak Tree is a tree that likes the poor rocky soils

It prefers slightly acidic land that is well-drained soil. It is a common choice for a shade tree that has 4-7 inch dark greenish-yellow leaves. The leaves range between 4-8 inches long and 2-4 inches wide that will turn yellow-brown in the fall. It has leaves that resemble those on the chestnut tree. It is a monoecious tree, so it is both male and female. The female red spike flowers are pollinated by pollen from the 2-3 inch long catkins that are on the same tree.

Chestnut Oak Tree produces acorns, which are a type of nut, that the squirrels and chipmunks like to eat, but not a typical ball for human consumption

The acorns start out as a green 1-inch nut that changes to brown as they age. The top of the acorn almost makes the bolt look like it is wearing a hat since it has a cap-like appearance. The bottom portion of the nut below the cap is smooth sides and oval shape. The chestnut oak is native from Maine to Alabama. It has thick bark that is a brown-gray with deep cut ridges. It has an overall round to oval shape.

Chestnut Oak's longevity is one of the reasons landowners will choose this tree as an addition to the landscape

Since it has a deep root system, it will grow on hillsides where many other trees are not able to get a good hold. It is an excellent addition to land where the soil is on the poor or where homeowners would want a wide spread of shade. 

Chestnut Oak Tree is a perfect tree.
