Quercus laurifolia, also known as swamp laurel oak or diamond leaf oak, is a deciduous oak tree with a broad, rounded crown. It is native to the southeastern and south-central United States, and can be found on alluvial flood plains up to 500 ft in altitude. While it can tolerate wetter sites, it cannot survive continuous or prolonged flooding. The tree is often grown for pulpwood, but it is also popular for landscaping due to its fast growth and pleasing appearance. Its acorns provide food for a variety of wildlife, including raccoons, deer, turkeys, and various birds and rodents. The tree germinates in the spring and can mature within 50 years. Despite being host to a variety of insects, diamond-leaf oak usually does not suffer from serious insect problems. It is often found growing alongside other oak species such as water oak and Nuttall oak.
