Chestnut Oak Bark (Quercus prinus). Chestnut Oak Trees like Northern hillsides with poor soil conditions. It is one of the larger oaks in Cushetunk Mountain Nature Preserve. The mature bark is "different than any other Oak, having ridges that are triangular in cross-section, with deep furrows in-between. Even with age, Chestnut oak retains the light gray to medium gray color of its bark that is characteristic of the White Oak group" (Ohio Department of Natural Resources).
