Swamp White Oak

Quercus bicolor

Relatively slow-growing, the Swamp White Oak performs well as a street or shade tree. The technical name “bicolor” refers to the two contrasting colors in the leaf—dark green above the pale and silvery white below. Its somewhat large acorns attract many of the area’s squirrels. Native to the United States, the wood of this tree is used for furniture, boats and wine casks.
