    Swamp White Oak loves moist sites, but thrives in many soil conditions:  wet, dry, clay, and even compacted soils don’t bother this tree, also called Bicolor Oak.  Growing 45’ tall with an open, rounded crown, and lustrous, heavy textured green leaves, Swamp White Oak provides great shade for your yard.  It’s acorns were used by native Americans and pioneers as an important foodsource.  

    Swamp White Oak are still available at the following Operation ReLeaf residential tree distributions this fall:  Cerro Gordo county, Lee county, and Tama County.  Download an order form by opening an attachment below, or going to Operation ReLeaf
