I have a 2 acre swamp/wetland/low spot that is surrounded by woods. It is full of canary grass. If you don't know much about canary grass it grows waist to chest high, chokes everything out, then dies and flattens out in the late fall. It does little for wildlife. I want to spray the area and plant shrubs and trees in there to hold deer. Soil is mostly wet with periods of standing water less than 6 inches deep. For the moisture level I know swamp white oak, silver maple, river birch, buttonbush, sycamore, and bald cypress will do well. Swamp white oak is a given, but I want something I can enjoy in my lifetime too. Charles Alzheimer stated in his book deer prefer to browse apple, ash, sugar maple, and basswood. I don't think apple and sugar maple will grow here and ash is marginal. Not sure where I could buy basswood if I wanted to. Anybody see a wet site species I am missing that could be great browse in addition to just cover? This is not limited to armchair biologists, you real biologists are welcome to respond too.
