This oak is sometimes referred to as Yellow Chestnut Oak. Grows to a height of 40 to 70 feet. This oak grows in an open, rounded crown shape with lustrous, dark yellowish, green foliage. Its large leaves are 4 to 6 inches long and 1/3 to inches wide. The leaves remain a lustrous dark, yellowish green all summer turning to orangish-brown to brown in fall. The mature acorns are about inches long and ovoid in shape; brown to black in color. The acorns are a source of food for many birds such as turkeys, pheasants, quail, woodpeckers and blue jays. Many mammals such as bear, squirrel and deer relish these acorns as well. The acorns are edible if roasted. The wood of this oak is hard, strong and durable and may be used for fencing and occasionally for furniture making. Excellent choice for firewood. Prefers mildly acidic to alkaline soil. Makes a nice shade tree in your landscape. No shipments to CA,FL,OR.
