    Water oak (Quercus nigra), sometimes called possum oak or  spotted oak, is commonly found along southeastern watercourses  and lowlands on silty clay and loamy soils. This medium-sized  rapid-growing tree is often abundant as second growth on cutover  lands. It is also planted widely as a street and shade tree in  southern communities.
