Native in the Eastern part of the United States, the Chestnut Oak is a durable giant with beautiful clusters of leaves and deeply-furrowed thick bark. This long-living species is a part of the White Oak family and is commonly found along ridge-tops and mountain peaks of forests from Maine to Mississippi. The Chestnut Oak is a unique tree that can tolerate difficult soils and conditions, but thrives best in dry climates with full sun and well-drained soil. At maturity, the Chestnut Oak can reach heights of 60-70 feet with a similar reach. Truly a thing of beauty, and true to its name, the leaves are Chestnut-shaped with thick veins and a rich green underside that is leathery to the touch. The yellow-green leaves in the spring, turn into a vibrant yellowish orange-brown in the fall. Given the unique shape and clusters of leaves, the Chestnut is known for having a large canopy spread. A perfect choice for those looking to plant a shade tree for their front or back lawns. You will need to be patient though since the tree typically only grows one to two feet per year. A slow growing tree but has a lot to offer. For those who are nature enthusiasts, the Chestnut Oak is a perfect choice since it attracts wildlife. The Chestnut’s large canopy provides shelter, while it’s tasty twigs and acorns offer food. Since it only takes one season to develop the acorns fully, your landscape will attract wildlife in no time. You will likely hear the gentle buzzing of bee’s in the spring as well when the yellow-green catkins blossom behind the leaves. Planting Chestnut Oak trees may give you peace of mind knowing you are planting the hardiest of Oaks that is virtually pest and disease free due to its superior genetics. The hardy and long life-span make this tree an excellent choice that can be around for generations to come.

The Chestnut Oak, or Rock Oak, features a rough dark brown bark that is characteristic of most oak varieties.

Like other oaks, it presents an abundance of acorns that are an essential food source for many wildlife species. It is an excellent source of shade and is virtually unrivaled for its landscape appeal.
