Great thread. I've got some ground on my place that has water very close to the surface. Kind of thinking of trying a swamp oak even though its a semi arid area. Thinking they may just do fine there. This will be one I come back to frequently to figure out other oaks that may work there. I do have one walnut tree growing besides the locusts, cottonwoods and cedars so am hopeful these will work there.
Any of the three covered so far should do well in damp ground. I haven't covered Bur Oak yet, but it is doing well in some damp ground as well.
