I think the fruits (?and hence the seeds) are too small. Also swamp oaks grow on very poor saline soil so the nutrients are pretty low. Similarly River Oaks grow on recent alluvium which also may be poor. There is some paper somewhere about them choosing those fruits with amongst their locally favoured Allocasuarinas that have a higher nutrient content.
