Looking for a stunning tree that can reach up to 50m? Then you'll love the Quercus muehlenbergii, also known as the Chinkapin Oak or Chinquapin Oak. This deciduous tree has a rounded crown and thin, flaky bark on the trunk. Its leaves resemble those of the chestnut and chinquapin, giving it its distinctive name. With a native range from Vermont to Mexico, the Chinkapin Oak is rarely a predominant tree, but thrives in association with many other species. It is generally found on well-drained upland soils derived from limestone or where limestone outcrops occur. The acorns mature in about 6 months after pollination and are usually found on short stalks. The scientific name honors Gotthilf Heinrich Ernst Muhlenberg, a Pennsylvania-based Lutheran pastor and amateur botanist. With its stunning foliage and unique features, the Chinkapin Oak is sure to add beauty to any landscape. Check out more information on this and other plants at plants.usda.gov.
