Live oak is the southern symbol of strength. It is the state tree of Georgia. The historic streets in small towns are lined with the reclining branches that create a canopy of speckled light. Live oak is a large spreading tree of the lower Coastal Plain from southeastern Virginia to southern Florida and to southern Texas. It normally grows in low sandy soils near the Coast but also occurs in moist rich woods and along stream banks.
The yellowish-brown wood is hard, heavy, tough, strong, and is used for structural beams, shipbuilding, posts, and in places requiring strength and durability. The trees have been historically planted in cities. Make sure the large yard or park can accommodate the wide spreading of the live oak.
