The swamp chestnut oak is a large and stately tree that thrives in a wide range of growing conditions. It is naturally found in wet, swampy areas, but also does well in compacted urban soils. Swamp chestnut oak leaves turn a deep bronze to red in the fall. The acorns are large and especially good for wildlife.
