Our passion for native oak is rooted in the love towards this land and the lives she fosters. Every swamp white oak supports a local ecosystem. Unlike the massive red oaks and bur oaks, swamp white oaks are smaller in size, which enables the trees to fit in backyards, front lawns, or other smaller properties.
Unlike most deciduous trees, white oaks tend to hold their leaves until spring. Therefore, the trees make excellent privacy screens all year round. If you don't like your neighbor, plant a white oak then you won't see him (her) often. Swamp white oak belongs to the white oak family.
About native oaks:
A single native acorn carries blessings from thousands of years of genetic heritage. Oaks and chestnuts were once standing side by side in the Eastern North America forests; they were dominant tree covers. The chestnuts have been wiped out by 1950. Oaks have since taken the place of the chestnuts and become king of the forest. Yet, the native oak population of North America is diminishing from coast to coast. In British Colombia alone, the Garry oaks' habitat has decreased by 95% in the last two centuries.
To prevent the history of American chestnut from repeating, one needs to act proactively to sustain our native oaks. Plant an oak tree today; you will be a true hero for many generations to come.
