This gorgeous shade tree is commonly called the chestnut oak due to its wonderfully large acorns. The edible (when leached) acorns are one of the largest of all, up to 1 ½", they are oval with interesting warty cups. This deciduous tree is a member of the white oak group and typically reaches 50-80' tall with a wide rounded crown. Very large (7") leathery leaves are dark-green above with fuzzy grey-green undersides and are very attractive. The foliage in autumn is yellow-brown in color. The acorns are an important food source for wildlife and can be leached and eaten or roasted as a coffee substitute. S/M-D
