Have you found an Ozark Chinquapin?

Tree Identification

Large blight free Ozark Chinquapin trees are extremely rare.  Trees like this are important to our breeding program to save and restore the species. One of the ways you can help our restoration effort is to help us locate fruiting Ozark Chinquapin trees, and report them to the Ozark Chinquapin Foundation.

If you think you have found a tree and would like us to help you make a positive identification, you can send us pictures of the leaves, bark, nuts, and burs along with a Tree Locator Form you can download here: 

Email the tree locator form with pictures to ozarkchinquapininfo@gmail.com  with the words "Tree Locator" in the subject line.

Email us if you have trouble with the forms or attaching pictures to your email. You will get an email or call back from us within 1 to 2 weeks to let you know if your tree is an Ozark Chinquapin.
