The Chinkapin Oak is a large tree with strong limbs and a wide-spreading crown. In time it can reach 60 feet tall and over 80 feet wide, with pale, flaking bark. The handsome glossy leaves turn golden in fall, and the acorns are considered the sweetest and best for eating fresh or cooking – a very nutritious flour can be made from them. Plant it on a large lawn, on rocky slopes, even on limestone, and to diversify existing woodlands. Make a contribution to future forests with this long lived, majestic tree.

  • Lovely native oak with golden fall colors
  • The best and sweetest acorns for forage cooking
  • Tolerant of alkaline soils and limestone
  • Important component of natural ecology
  • Ideal for diversifying existing woodlands

The Chinkapin Oak needs full sun, although young trees will tolerate some shade. It grows best in moderate climates. It will grow in all well-drained soils, even poorer, dry ones, and even on alkaline soils, where most oaks fail. It supports a diversity of butterflies and insects, and the acorns provide valuable food for birds and mammals. Self-sufficient once it is established, and drought resistant, it benefits from some formative pruning when young.
