Swamp White Oak Quercus bicolor
Grows in wet woods and in bottomland. The acorns are good food for deer, turkeys, and ducks. Swamp white oak is a striking tree with attractive peeling bark, especially on young trees. The lustrous, lobed leaves have a two-tone appearance, dark green on top with a silvery-white underside. Fall color is an orange-gold to yellow in mid-autumn. An excellent shade tree for any landscape.
