To explain this unique hybrid oak, lets first go over the two trees that the comprise the Compton. Overcup is tolerant of poor drainage more so than any other oak (it grows in just about anything but standing water, and can handle annual dormant season flooding more than any other oak), but most game eat its acorns as a last resort.  Overcup planted in landscapes can grow just about anywhere including hilltops.  Live oaks are also extremely site tolerant, but prefer better drainage in moist sites than overcup.  Live oak is extremely productive as far as mast is concerned, and deer (also other game) love its acorns.  Humans love the evergreen foliage and wide spreading habit known only in the southern states.

Comptons take all the “good” traits of both parents and in some cases actually improve those traits.  These traits include faster growth than both parents, a usually larger, tastier acorn than both parents (some trees have quarter sized acorns), and heavy production.  Variation among trees is typical (some lean more toward live oak, some a perfect mix, some more like overcup).  Variation is great because some may drop acorns on years when others don’t produce.  This also makes each and every tree an “individual”.
