Majestic Live Oak

Symbol of the "Deep South"

By

Live oak is a symbolic tree of the Deep South. Quercus virginiana has a squat and leaning form with a large diameter tapering trunk. The leaves are semi-evergreen, are waxy and resist to salt spray which allow the tree to live on the southern coast and on barrier islands. Their prolific acorns are the primary food for coastal wildlife.
