Fagaceae -- Beech family

    Bryce E. Schlaegel

    Willow oak (Quercus phellos), also known as peach oak, pin  oak, and swamp chestnut oak, grows on a variety of moist alluvial  soils, commonly on lands along water courses.

    This medium to large southern oak with willowlike foliage is known  for its rapid growth and long life. It is an important source of  lumber and pulp, as well as an important species to wildlife  because of heavy annual acorn production. It is also a favored  shade tree, easily transplanted and used widely in urban areas.
