10.11.2023 Quercus acutissima is here :-)

It took a while, but it worked. October harvest 2023 of Quercus acutissima (Japanese chestnut oak, sawn oak, silkworm oak). At last!

This tree grows up to 30 meters high. The leaves, which can grow up to 20 cm long, are striking. This type of oak originates from Japan, China and Korea. Quercus acutissima is now also cultivated in the USA. This species is very rarely found in aroboretums in Central Europe. The tree grows very quickly and is considered to be very temperature tolerant. This oak species prefers to grow on slightly acidic, humus-rich soils.
