After a pin oak I bought this spring grew nearly 4 feet this year, I want to plant more. I understand that they will grow in moist soil, but my question is how wet can the soil be? I am looking to plant some in a swampy area that is a mix between soft maples, yellow birch, hemlock and cedar. Plenty of standing water in the spring, mostly mud in late Summer. With lots of small higher spots. The area I would like to plant looks similar to this.
