Few trees are as strong and awe-inspiring as the Live Oak.
A large, spreading tree with reclining branches, it thrives in rich, coastal soils and along the banks of streams and rivers.
Often covered in Spanish Moss, the tree evokes images of southern weddings and historical small towns. With the moss draping over its long branches, the Live Oak has one of the most distinctive appearances of any tree.
Its impressive branches wind out toward the sky, causing speckled light to filter to the ground beneath it.
The strength of the tree's wood is legendary. It was a common component of early American ships, specifically used to make hulls because of its curved nature and incredible tensile strength. The wood is a soothing yellow-brown in color.
Acorns, a by-product of the tree, are a sweet attraction to a variety of birds and animals including ducks, deer and squirrels.
Because of its broad, sweeping branches, ensure there is ample room when planting to accommodate this fast growing beauty.
