Swamp White Oak

Swamp White oak in the summer, nice large spreading tree.

As the name implies the swap white oak is a bottomland species but does not grow in a swamp.   Grows well in most places but does not like high PH soils and can cause yellowing of the leaves.  It is a large, spreading oak that can endure weeks of flooding but not constantly wet soil.  It is a very nice yard tree and a good windbreak tree.  Plant 20-50 ft apart and no closer than 30 feet from any rows of evergreen windbreak trees to prevent over topping of the branches and competition from spreading roots.

SWO in winter, common for smaller trees to have leaves hang on all winter.
