Red maple, Shadblow, River Birch, Ash, Thornless Honeylocust, Sweetgum, Sweet Bay Magnolia, Black Tupelo?, Pin Oak, Willow, American Elm...

How did I do?

I would also recommend Red Twig Dogwood, Clethra, Larch, Fothergilla, and Cornelian Cherry. It will take a little more research to see which will do best in our situation.

look at a swamp. What do you see? Black spruce, Red and White Cedars, etc.
