good trees for wet area of yard
I have a long (200', going across the middle back part of my property) depressed area of my yard that is seasonally wet-mucky, from late winter through mid-spring most years.
Most years, it's not true standing water, but due to a high water table and iffy drainage in that area, it gets "muddy" and in high-rainfall years might have some standing water for a short period of time.
In summer it can dry out completely and usually does, this summer especially.
I'm in Central Ohio. Soil pH is about 6.8.
What are some good trees for this environment?
Baldcypress and Dawn Redwood come to mind for interesting landscape plants - what are some others?
I've thought of Red Maple (Acer rubrum) but doesn't it prefer a touch more acidic soil than what I have?
