RE: quercis macrocarpa, Burr Oak

Swamp White Oak (quercis bicolor I believe) Does very well here and I have
heard it transplants well like you say. I hope to get 200 bare root swamp
white oaks in the ground this spring. White Oaks are the best of the oaks
here in Delaware in my opinion and one of my favorite trees to rope climb.
The large curved branch structure on specimens 100 years old or older are
beautiful to look at and the most fun to climb. There is very little that
compares to the feeling of being 70 or 80 feet up in a tree and looking down
and seeing the large leaders including the one you are climbing on gently
bending in the breeze. Very few get to see a tree from this perspective and
of those few even fewer really appreciate these large plants for what they
are and how intertwined trees are with humans past, present and future.

  Is the Swamp White Oak commonly available in your neck of the woods?  In
our area this variety has been reported to be much easier to transplant.
