The Swamp Chestnut Oak Tree or Quercus michauxii offers multiple seasons of color and visual interest while being easy to maintain. This deciduous tree has a dense, rounded crown. The catkin flowers bloom in spring and later transition into acorns. Only mature trees produce acorns. By late spring, the tree is engulfed in green-lobed leaves. The foliage turns golden yellow or reddish-orange by fall before dropping. The light gray bark has deep furrows for added texture. Swamp Chestnut Oak Tree reaches 60 to 80 feet tall and 30 to 70 feet wide.

Native to swampy areas in the eastern U.S., this tree grows well in naturally damp areas. The Swamp Chestnut Oak Tree is a wonderful shade tree and can be used as a specimen. This variety is resistant to oak wilt and is generally healthy, although it is susceptible to common oak diseases and pests.

Swamp Chestnut Oak Tree Care

Plant Swamp Chestnut Oak Tree in full to part sun. Avoid areas with overhead utility lines. This tree prefers acidic, loamy, well-drained soil. New trees need regular water, while established trees only need water during a dry period.

Prune Swamp Chestnut Oak Trees in late winter or early spring. Remove crossed branches and shape the plant as needed. Dead or damaged growth can be removed at any time.

Swamp Chestnut Oak Tree Spacing

Space trees 80 feet from buildings, driveways, and roads and 50 feet from other trees. The thick canopy creates dappled shade, ideal for ground cover requiring limited light.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
