Quercus x schuettei

-hybrid of Q. bicolor and Q. macrocarpa

-growing at edge of swampy forest with moist sand with high organic content

-interesting local hybrid swarm with Q. macrocarpa, Q. bicolor, and Q. x schuettei in this swamp forest

-has peduncle almost as long as that on Q. bicolor acorns

-acorn cap has slight fringe, but is quite variable in within acorns coming from the same branch on this tree

-leaves are massive which is common on many hybrid oaks (many are 12"/30 cm long)

-deep-cut leaves with dense hair and undersides

-buds are slightly pointed (more like Q. macrocarpa buds)

-small branches (1" thick) have peeling bark like on Q. bicolor

-a very spectacular tree!

There are two Q. x schuettei trees (Q. bicolor x Q. macrocarpa hybrid) in this post including one large mature tree, and one smaller 3 metre tall tree. These trees are part of a local population of Q. bicolor mixed with Q. macrocarpa in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. A small percentage of the trees in this population are Q. x schuettei (5-10%).

Note:
-last 2 photos have sets of 3 specimens which include Q. bicolor (on left) and Q. macrocarpa (on right) for comparison to Q. schuettei (centre).

Main Q. schuettei features to note:
-distinct, upright branching form is consistent on both small and large tree.
-leaves with 4 or more deep sinuses (that nearly extend to midrib).
-acorns with 8-15 mm stalks (intermediate between Q. bicolor & Q. macrocarpa)
-buds fully pubescent (like Q. bicolor) with slight conical tip (like Q. macrocarpa).
