More About Quercus prinoides:

Quercus prinoides begins producing acorns at a young age, often when only three or four years old. Unlike many oaks, once it starts bearing, it has a good crop almost every year. Its acorns are also less bitter and more palatable to wildlife than those of most other oaks.



It gets its name from its toothed elliptically-shaped leaves, which resemble those of a chestnut tree. Another common name for the species is Dwarf Chinkapin Oak.

Gardening Suggestions for Dwarf Chestnut Oak:

The tree can be used as a combination landscaping and wildlife plant. It is small enough and attractive enough to put into borders and gardens, where its leaves can turn a blazing orange-red before dropping in autumn. It can also be incorporated into a semi-wild area, where a grouping of several plants can quickly create an excellent wildlife habitat.
