Chinquapin Oak (Quercus muhlenbergii)

Chinquapin Oak (Quercus muhlenbergii)

This beautiful white oak is an excellent shade tree for large yards or acreage plantings. Its acorns, widely prized by the American Indian, have been a valuable forage throughout the years. The chinquapin oak has a stately form, with a narrow crown and large, textured leaves. Fall color is often a rich gold or purple. The tree is highly resistant to oak wilt.

Chinquapin oak is deer resistant but young trunks need to be protected from rubbing antlers.
