Rare or unusual hybrids

In looking around I saw this topic in under the old forum.

Do you still do this?

Is a Swamp Chestnut X Swamp White oak possible, or have you done so already?

If you have tried this cross did they show hybrid vigor?

I've a area in which I'm planting that in some wet springs can hold surface sheet water for a couple weeks. I'd be very interested in buying some of these.

Yes, give me a call Craig and I will let you know what I have cooking for 2010. The cross Swamp Chestnut x Swamp White oak would not really be a good hybrid as both trees are considered by many as the same species. Some of the hybrids of Q. bicolor are Q. x white oak, Bur oak, English, English Fastigate, Chinkapin and Chestnut oak.

Ahhh, I did not know that.

I'll be in contact regarding trees for spring. I've some pine, spruce & shrubs started, but am interested in something to go into moister soil areas.
