Quercus bicolor (Swamp White Oak)


10. Walking along the front of the Technical Education Laboratory towards Cook Hall you see directly in front of TEL some specimens of: Quercus bicolor (Swamp White Oak). The species name is based on the leaves, which are dark lustrous green on top and pale underneath. All members of the White Oak group, including this species, have somewhat lobed rather than sharp spiny leaf tips.
