Swamp White Oak

-

The Swamp White Oak is a stunning, stately deciduous tree that grows rapidly to a mature height of ~60′ with similar canopy width. As its name suggests, the swamp white oak is adapted to moist sites like wetlands and river edges with acidic soil, but it is surprisingly resilient under drought conditions. It produces acorns that are approximately 1″ in length that are encapsulated by a cap that covers nearly half of the nut. It is well known for producing acorns with very few tannins, meaning they are the sweeter and easier to digest for wildlife. It is a favorite of whitetail deer, ducks, turkeys, and squirrels. This oak transplants extremely well and produces stunning fall color, making it a particularly attractive tree for landscape projects.
