Swamp White Oak is a large, relatively moderate growing tree. It has large leaves with rounded lobes, and a scaling bark. Its large acorns are favored by deer and wildlife because of the low (bitter tasting) tannin content. Begins to bear in 20-30 yrs and with crops produced every 3-5 years in October-November. They will produce an average of 120 cleaned acorns per pound. Grows best in richer upland soils throughout the eastern U.S.

|Fertilization||Do not fertilize at planting. Once the trees are established, fertilize in early spring (Mar-April) as growth begins. Do not fertilize in the fall, which could promote late season tender growth that can be damaged by early frosts.|
|Watering||Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.|
