The chestnut oak is similar in name but not to be confused with swamp chestnut oak. The acorns as well as the twigs provide food for many types of wildlife, white-tailed deer and wild turkey included. This native tree is a winner for your honey hole hunting spot, or for ornamental landscape use in your yard. The yellowish-orange to rusty brown fall color can provide a stunning shade tree near the cabin as the autumn season rolls around. The chestnut oak is intermediately shade tolerant and prefers dryer upland soil sites. In some places this tree is fairly uncommon, so it can also possibly add some unique variety to your property.
