Cherrybark Oak is a native tree to the southeastern United States. With bark color similar to that of the black cherry tree, Cherrybark Oak is typically found in moist, low lands near bodies of water on flood and coastal plains. Achieving great heights, this tree is a wonderful deciduous shade tree candidate for landscaping. Originally classified as a subspecies Southern Red Oak, Quercus falcata, Cherrybark Oak is now classified separately because of its preference of wetter sites and small differences in the bark and leaf appearance. Cherrybark Oak provides nice red fall color and is relatively disease resistant. It also makes an excellent candidate for wildlife food plots because of its acorn production and is an excellent reforestation and timber tree known to live for centuries under the right conditions. With this in mind, Cherrybark Oaks make perfect candidates for reforestation programs such as the USDA Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and programs sponsored by the EPA.
