Swamp Chestnut Oak Seedlings 

Swamp Chestnut Oak is a great tree that is durable and long living. This tree is very popular, mostly because of the height it brings to the landscape.  It is excellent for wind blocking and will also bring some added shade to the landscape area.  The foliage will be dark green in the spring and summer and quickly transform into yellows for the fall season.

 

Swamp Chestnut Oak, or Quercus michauxii, has earned many other names such as Cow Oak based on the fact that their acorns are fairly sweet and commonly fed to livestock, but they are also referred to as Basket Oak, as the wood readily splits into lengthy strips that make it ideal for basket weaving. 

This fast-growing tree is perfect to enjoy all season long, as it's simple, semi-oval shaped leaves change from a rich green to attractive hues of golden yellows and bright reds in the autumn months, giving your landscape ablaze of colors, yet also providing cool relieving shade from the sun in the hot summer months.
Their sturdy branches are excellent for blocking out winds and are covered in a thick, scaly, light gray colored bark. 

This species of oak tree is easy to maintain, has a long-life span, durable, and attracts many types of wildlife making them a popular choice for gardeners.

In early November to early December, the large acorns begin to drop and draw the attention of various mammals that enjoy eating them as a source of food in the late fall. 

The Swamp Chestnut Oak Tree is a great addition to any gardener who wants to bring a bit of the forest to their landscape.
