Chestnut Oak Tree 

The Chestnut Oak tree is a beautiful and prominent member of the White Oak group. Like many other oak trees, it is common in the wild and has an inner bark thick in tannic acid. It is notable for its durability, beauty, and strength, thriving in even the roughest conditions, including cliffs or hillsides and rocky or mountainous terrain where many other oaks struggle to reside. It is a rapidly growing tree that can reach over one hundred feet in height and is native to Kentucky. It features lengthy, chestnut-shaped leaves that turn dark green and yellow in the summer, and orange to brown in the Fall, blooming in an oval or rounded crown during the Spring.

The Chestnut Oak produces sweet chestnuts during its reproductive cycle that you can eat without roasting or boiling. 

 Common uses for the Chestnut Oak include a provider of shade for large areas or obscure hard-to-block areas. While it is an extremely tough and durable tree, it prefers full sun and dry soil and lower pH conditions to avoid developing overly yellowed leaves, also known as chlorosis, a common blight in oaks.  Oak trees are an essential part of America's ecosystem and have been around for thousands of years. Besides being some of the most beautiful trees in the world, the oak's also have medicinal properties and are strong enough to be used in shipbuilding and other construction projects. Due to their deep roots, they can also prevent massive soil shifts during floods and storms, stand tall during strong conditions, and steady during an earthquake.

 Height: The Chestnut Oak usually grows to be between sixty and seventy feet in height, though it has been known to reach almost 150 feet in some conditions. Make sure you have plenty of room for this big, beautiful oak tree to flourish.
