Fagaceae -- Beech family

    M. B. Edwards

    Swamp chestnut oak (Quercus michauxii) is known also as  basket oak, for the baskets made from its wood, and cow oak  because cows eat the acorns. One of the important timber trees of  the South, it grows on moist and wet loamy soils of bottom lands,  along streams and borders of swamps in mixed hardwoods. The high  quality wood is used in all kinds of construction and for  implements. The acorns are sweet and serve as food to wildlife.
