The Chinkapin Oak is native to central and eastern United states and grows moderately as a young tree then very slowly as it matures. The first set of acorns develop when the tree is about 30 years old. Its name honors Gotthilf Henry Ernest Muhlenberg, 18-19th century Lutheran minister-botanist from Pennsylvania.

This plant will ship bare root.  Approximately 2’ tall.

Bare root planting tips:
~  If you can't plant immediately, store your plant in a cool location and keep the roots moist or pot in a container with a nursery potting mix from your local garden center.
~  Before planting, let the roots soak for several hours as you prepare the site. You'll want to dig a large enough hole so the root mass can spread out and the plant is at the same soil level as when it was growing in the nursery.
~  Once planted, water it in well and wait a month before fertilizing. Mulching will help to maintain moisture and raise soil temperatures for faster growth.
