In a Nutshell:
* The chestnut oak is readily identified by its massively-ridged dark gray-brown bark, the thickest of any eastern North American oak.
* It is native to the eastern United States, where it is one of the most important ridgetop trees from southern Maine southwest to central Mississippi, with an outlying northwestern population in southern Michigan.
* The acorns of the chestnut oak are 1.5–3 cm long and 1–2 cm broad, among the largest of native American oaks, surpassed in size only by the bur oak and possibly swamp chestnut oak.
* Wood - close-grained, heavy, hard, rather tough, strong, durable in contact with the soil. It weighs 47lb per cubic foot. Used commercially like Q. alba, it is used for furniture, cabinet making, interior finishes, fence posts and fuel. more...
* A 10-year-old sapling will stand about 5 m (16 ft) tall. more...
