Named for the French botanist Andre Michaux, who discovered this stately oak (among many others) back in the 1800’s, the common name refers to where it is found and the shape of the leaves. Don’t let the swamp part fool you…although a heavy drinker, SCO’s won’t tolerate poor drainage or longer periods of flooding, save those spots for Nuttall or overcup oak. Rather, it prefers rises or swells in poorly drained bottoms, and will thrive in moderate to well drained bottoms and coves that lead to the bottoms. It has also taken on other names such as “basket oak” and “cow oak” based on uses for its wood and acorns. 

Toxey likes to call them “super swampers,” based on their aggressive growth and form, and its acorns “gobstoppers” because he gets a kick out of watching younger deer struggle to get the huge acorns centered perfectly in their jaws. He claims a loud popping sound indicates their success followed by a series of crunches. 

Swamp Chestnut oak has a reputation of being unproductive for a few years following a good crop, so we only choose from parent trees that consistently produce on an annual basis. Many of our favorite hybrids come from the same tracts as our parent SCO’s, which could very well explain why our parent trees seem to show such variation in acorn and leaf shape, but most importantly produce huge crops more often than not. Expect acorns to begin dropping roughly a week to two weeks after white oak.

Great idea.

So glad I purchased the bundle and split them with a friend. He was overwhelmed and so was I on the quality of the seedlings. Got them planted and will put tubes on them this Spring. Could not be happier. Thanks so much.

Swamp Chestnut Oak Bundle

My order for the Swamp Chestnut Oak Bundle and an additional 10 White Oak seedlings arrived Monday and all have been planted exactly where each tree was to go by Wednesday. I was extremely pleased with the quality and health of the seedlings and also by the prompt service. I was a bit worried about ordering so late in the season, but it worked out great and all trees are planted exactly where I wanted them. The trees were very easy to plant because of your root system. They were not tiny but a good size to handle. The Swamp Chestnut Oaks have been planted every ten feet along a drainage ditch on my farm. I will be extending this planting along the ditch in Spring. These oak trees are part of a basket splint nursery that I am establishing with trees planted fairly close together in rows as they are being grown for basket splint and will be cut and processed for splint when fairly young. I will definitely be ordering more in the Spring. Thank You! It is amazing to now have 22 new oak trees, each planted exactly where each was to go, in a spot where just a few days ago there was nothing. The trees look great!
