    Swamp Chestnut Oak is a beautiful, stately medium to large white oak with unique dark green chestnut-like leaves. Its leaves turn bright yellow in fall. It produces very large (1-1 1/4" long), acorns that are low in tannin, and are prized by deer and wildlife. Scaly attractive bark. Grows best in richer soils throughout much of the east, and as far south as north Florida and west to east Texas. Begins to bear acorns between 20-25 yrs of age.
