As the name suggests, swamp white oak is one of the keystone species of forested wetlands throughout the Midwest. Given its ability to grow to a large size and persist longer than many of its competitors, individual swamp white oak trees are often a steady and prolific source of acorns within the most grandiose bottomlands and flatwoods forests of our region.
