8.2.2024: Quercus palustris (swamp oak)

Quercus palustris (swamp oak) is a deciduous tree. In rare cases, it can grow up to 35 meters high. It is relatively short-lived and “only” lives to around 200 years (maximum).

It is originally native to eastern North America. As the name suggests, it can easily withstand several weeks of flooding. Its wood is often used for railroad tracks. Outside North America, the wood is rarely processed industrially due to its limited availability and very low distribution in the forestry industry. In Europe it is sometimes found in parks.
