NUTTALL OAK – Quercus nuttallii

The Nuttall Oak tree is one of the few commercially important species found on poorly drained clay flats and low bottoms of the Gulf Coastal Plain and north in the Mississippi and Red River Valleys. The acorn or winter buds identify Nuttall oak, easily confused with pin oak. The lumber is often cut and sold as red oak. In addition to producing timber, Nuttall oak is an important species for wildlife management because of heavy annual mast production. Nuttall Oak trees are a good choice for low poorly drained locations.

SWAMP CHESTNUT OAK – Quercus michauxii

Swamp chestnut oak is a handsome member of the white oak group known for its large, fuzzy, coarsely toothed leaves and big acorns. Like many oaks, swamp chestnut makes a good shade tree with its broad, spreading branches and large foliage. Swamp chestnut oak averages 60' to 80' in height with a 2' to 3' diameter. In open areas, the crown is low and widely spreading, but the tree has a more compact form when grown within a forest.

The fruit clusters on this shrub-like tree are scarlet red. Flowering dogwood is adapted to most upland sites but grows best on rich, well-drained soils on middle and lower slopes. Flowering dogwood is distributed throughout the eastern United States.

PERSIMMON – Diospyros virginiana

The persimmon is a slow-growing deciduous tree, rarely exceeding 50 ft (15 m) in height. The leaves are generally elliptic, 4-6 in (10-15 cm) long, dark green on top and pale green underneath. The bark on older trunks is black and broken up into distinctive, regular square blocks. The flowers are greenish and inconspicuous, with each tree having only male (staminate) or female (pistillate) flowers, a condition called dioecious. The female lowers develop into showy orange fruits, up to 2 in (5 cm) in diameter, that are very astringent during maturation, but deliciously sweet when fully ripe. It is one of the most widely-adapted of trees, growing naturally in bottomland swamps, along stream banks, in upland forests, in fields, piney woods, and even dry scrub lands.

OVERCUP OAK – Quercus lyrata

Overcup oak is planted to improve wildlife habitat and for bottomland restoration. Ducks, wild turkeys, hogs, white-tailed deer, squirrels, and smaller rodents eat the acorns. Overcup oak also is planted as an ornamental. The trees can withstand significant flooding and poorly drained soils and are tolerant to drought and cold. In spite of its natural occurrence where periodical flooding is typical, Overcup oak grows best on sites with better drainage and soil texture.
