Oak (Chestnut)

Quercus montana

The Chestnut Oak is native to difficult growing sites in the Appalachian Mountains and is a tree that has been observed to be up to the challenge of thriving in contemporary landscapes which often have less than ideal growing conditions. The wood is tough and resists storm damage and the foliage is normally a healthy dark green and free from problems. The winter branching outline is majestic and bold. Fall color is usually respectable but not outstanding.

I have a particular fondness for the silhouettes of trees in the dormant season. I am especially fascinated with the bold trees, those with large, open branching structure that spread their solid limbs as if they deserve respect by simply being there. Chestnut Oak is one such tree...
