Overcup Oak
Quercus Lyrata
betula_nigra

The name of this tree comes from the acorn being almost entirely enclosed in the nearly spherical cup. It is often called the swamp white oak or swamp post oak. It is not abundant anywhere in South Carolina. It grows on poorly-drained soils, and is slow growing and long lived.
