On this edition of ID That Tree, Purdue Extension forester Lenny Farlee introduces you to the swamp white oak, a native Indiana species typically found in bottomlands and wet sites. This member of the white oak group has rounded lobed leaves that are dark on top and light colored on the flip side, and produces acorns that are held on long stems.
