Black willow (most likely) in its element. High water and flooding.
Reading a report that listed trees that can survive flooding of more than one year.
These trees came from a study in the Missouri river and lower Mississippi river after the 1993 flood.
" He has built his house like the spider’s web,
Or as a hut which the watchman has made.
He lies down rich, but never again;
He opens his eyes, and it is no longer.
Terrors overtake him like a flood;
A tempest steals him away in the night. "
