As the name implies the swap white oak is a bottomland species but does not grow in a swamp. Grows well in most places zone 3-8 but does not like high PH soils and can cause yellowing of the leaves. It is a large 80 FT spreading oak that can endure weeks of flooding but not constantly wet soil. It is a very nice yard tree and a good windbreak tree.

For a deciduous windbreak recommend putting with other species and space them 12 ft part in a single row, we like to use them on the outside of your evergreen windbreaks if you have room. Keep 30 ft from any evergreens to prevent light and root competition. If wanting to use deciduous trees for a windbreak contact us on what is currently working best for your situation.
