For example, I can count at least six different species of oaks from my stand--willow oak, pin oak, and swamp chestnut oak
in the wet areas, and southern red oak, white oak, and black oak on the higher spots.
Other species of white oak include Quercus prinus or chestnut oak; Quercus lyrata, also known as overcup oak; and Quercus mich-auxii, also known as swamp chestnut oak
This year's Register will see many new champions, including the smooth blaekhaw and swamp chestnut oak
. Among other changes, updates will bring the state of Rhode Island back onto the Register's pages, and see the state of Indiana acquire eight new champions.
At least seven former champions have gone to that great forest in the sky, including a 435-point swamp chestnut oak
in Big Oak State Park, Missouri; a 315-point eastern hemlock in Towns County, Georgia; a 829-point douglas-fir in Jedediah State Park, California; and a 69-point common pawpaw in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Other white oaks include swamp white oak, (Quercus bicolor), chestnut oak (Quercus prinus), bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa), swamp chestnut oak
(Quercus michauzii), chinkapin oak (Quercus muehlenbergii), overcup oak (Quercus lyrata) and post oak (Quercus stellata).
