Quick Overview:

Live oak is a large, long-lived, evergreen oak that typically grows 40-80? tall with a short trunk, low branching and a broad-spreading rounded crown. This is a majestic tree whose massive spreading limbs and branches are often seen draped with Spanish moss in many parts of its range. Live oaks were planted along many old southern plantation roads and over time have become a symbol of the South. Acorns are valued food for a variety of wildlife.
