Survive Flooding

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.

Water hickory
Button brush
Swamp privet
Green ash
Water locust
Deciduous holly
Water elm
Overcup oak
Nuttall oak
Black willow
Bald cypress.

Job 27:18-20
" 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. "
