Featured Tree of the Season: Swamp White Oak


The swamp white oak tree is a virtually unknown landscape species. This beautiful tree works well in areas with rich, moist soil. The leaves of the swamp white oak feature a deep, lustrous dark green color on the top. However, when you look on the opposing side of the leaf, the trees true beauty appears. The underside of each leaf reveals a crisp pure white. In the fall the tree usually turns a  yellowish brown or russet-red hue. Typically, the swamp white oak will grow 50-60 feet tall and wide. These trees are ideal for large areas of  land such as golf courses, parks, or business complexes. These trees are a wonderful feature that add beautiful curb appeal to any home.
