Quercus michauxii

Swamp chestnut oak

Quercus michauxii is a southeastern native oak, occurring primarily in bottomland forests (uncommon in the mountains). It prefers to be grown in moist to wet soils. The leaves on this oak appear “crinkled,” similar to those on Chestnut trees (Castanea). Quercus michauxii works great in restoration projects. Oak acorns are an important food source for much of our wildlife, and oak trees serve as important hosts to much of our butterfly, pollinator, and insect life.
