Chinkapin Oak, Quercus muhlenbergii Leaves resemble Chestnut(also known as Chinkapin) leaves. Typically found on calcareous soils and rocky slopes. Gray, flaky bark very similar to white oak but with a more yellow-brown tint. The acorns have a thin shell and are among the sweetest of any oak. Taste excellent even raw. The acorns provide food for both wildlife and people. Like the other members of the white oak family, the wood is a durable hardwood prized for many types of construction.
