Chestnut Oak

Quercus montana (Q.prinus)

Fast Track White Oak

The chestnut oak thrives in dry, rocky soils and is naturally found on knolls and hilltops. The broad and lustrous leaves are dark and yellow-green. They turn orange, yellow, brown, or red in the fall and it produces an abundance of acorns. With age, the crown typically becomes vase-shaped, and the deeply furrowed bark is interesting year-round.
