    Swamp white oak (Quercus bicolor) is a mediumsized tree of  the north central and northeastern mixed forests. It is found in  lowlands, along edges of streams, and in swamps subject to  flooding. It is rapid growing and long lived, reaching 300 to 350  years. The hard strong wood is commercially valuable and is  usually cut and sold as white oak. Many kinds of wildlife eat the  acorns, particularly ducks.
