I have a spot on our land that we do not hunt a lot that borders a creek, I have been thinking of planting it as a sanctuary with some type of pine. One area is close to a road so I would want the trees to be thick as they mature. Both areas would have a chance at being under water for a few days if the creek were to flood. Any trees out there that meets the requirements and can withhold being underwater a few days before they mature? Thanks!

all native trees to tennessee can withstand flooding during dormant time of year, Chaney floods naturally every year and it has never been a problem

I guess bald cypress would not work because they are deciduous...

Do not know how Loblolly would react to water, especially if young trees were completely submersed...

In the deep south you dont usually see many loblolly in the swamps and river floodplains.
