This tree blooms in the springtime with small catkins, male and female. These small catkins later change into little acorns that ripen in the fall. These oak trees acorns are a primary food source for many kinds of wildlife, even more so for squirrels and deer who have no other food sources during the winter months. This oak tree has a broad canopy, and in the fall turns a wine red color as the leaves being to die. This tree shouldn't be mixed with the Swamp Chestnut Oak, which prefers wetlands.
