Chinkapin oak (Quercus muehlenbergii) is a member of the white oak group with chestnut-type leaves, found mostly on dry upland sites along bluffs and in glades. Will tolerate very dry, rocky soil, but will grow on a wide variety of sites. The acorns are nearly black, about 3/4 to 1 inch long and are a favorite food source for deer and turkey. Height at maturity is 70 ft. Its light gray bark and branch structure provide a nice silhouette in winter. This tree may be difficult to find, but makes a good shade or street tree.
Uses: Chinkapin oak can be used for reforestation. Wildlife benefits are food and cover.
