Naomi Starks Oak

Post by Larry Tucei » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:25 pm

ENTS, While in Mobile Ala., back in April I noticed a large Live Oak on Cottage Hill rd. The tree was at least 22’ in circumference. No one was there so I left a card at the address and the homeowner contacted me later. After we talked she gave me permission to come back and measure this fine Oak. The Naomi Starks Oak was the largest of many Oaks on the property. The results were CBH-23’1”, Height-69’ and Spread-=118’ x 120’. The Starks oak is a beautiful tree with massive limbs and nice crown.

Damn, that's a nice oak! There's no telling how many fantastic trees are located in yards and back lots on the property of individuals throughout the south.

James, Thanks buddy. JRS, You are exactly right, I estimate several hundred. Since doing this Project I've found big Live Oaks in places that I've been around for 30 years. So I can imagine how many there must be. Louisiana has the most by far, with Ms, second and Ala., third. Florida and Georgia would be the next in line followed by SC, Texas, NC, and Virginia. Some of these states may not be in that order but is an estimation, based on what I have been researching. Larry
