This tree is located along the east side of 21st Ave. S. across from the entrance to the East Garage.
Although swamp white oak leaves
are similar to swamp chestnut oak leaves
, notice that the lobes/teeth of swamp white oak leaves
tend to become less noticeable as you approach the base of the leaf. There are usually fewer than 8 pairs of veins extending to the teeth. Swamp white oak acorns
have very long stalks (although this tree has not been observed to produce acorns).
Swamp white oak is normally found in wetland areas and isn't typically planted. However, a row of them has been planted along this side of 21st Ave. This individual is in the best shape -- many of the others have been mutilated by the power company.
