Live Oak Project - Larry Tucei and others

Larry Tucei, an NTS member from Mississippi, is conducting an exploration of Live Oak specimens in the southeastern United States. These trees represent some of the largest volume hardwoods, with the greatest girths, and greatest crown spreads of any tree in the eastern United States. The plan is to measure as many of these trees as possible to obtain accurate documentation of the tree girth, height, and crown spread. These results will be compared with existing listings of the Live Oak Society. Some trees on that list were measured in 1934 and this provides a benchmark of how much radial growth has taken place in the past 73 years. In addition Larry has collected samples for dendrochronological dating from downed tree specimens as there are limited accurate age counts for the species. Measurements will typically also be accompanied by photographic documentation of the specimens and descriptions.

Trip Reports & Discussions

Live Oak, Ocean Springs, MS ... 4c89?hl=en ENTS, Went to Ocean Springs, Ms., today and measured a 20 CBH, Height-48' and Spread-108' x 96' Live Oak. A small tree for the listing but still a nice specimen. Growing on Lovers Lane Dr., on a Peninsula adjacent to the entrance where Fort Bayou meets Biloxi Bay. The tree had around 18-20' of saltwater during Katrina with little to no effect. However the house next to the tree was destroyed, as were many in that vicinity. On the way back out of the region I spied a huge Live Oak and lined up a visit in the future. This tree is a 25'+CBH, I don't find many of them around here anymore I've done them all already. Didn't have the time to measure it but can't wait to go back soon and get it.... more » Feb 20, 2010.

SC lowcountry live oak updates ... e329?hl=en Hello Larry and ENTS, I made a quick visit to the Charleston/McClellanville/Geor¬getown area of SC to visit family and was able to get some good measurements on a few Live Oaks to add to the Live Oak Project list. Some were on private property and the owners were not home, so I could not obtain all of the desired measurements:... more » Feb 8, 2010.

Live Oak Sprawl ... 2060?hl=en The tree of Life in Audubon Park in New Orleans is a great example of the giant spread these great trees can attain, note my buddy Donald standing under the crown. Spread-150' Height-58.6' and CBH-30' Larry Jan 31 2010.

Live Oak height vs sprawl? ... a397?hl=en it occurred to me that the major feature of live oaks here in the low country is not their height, which can be stunted due to salt spray as their "sprawl" in the way large branches extend far away from the trunk. is that a subject of any interest? pete Jan 30, 2010.

South Carolina Live Oaks ... 550d?hl=en ENTS, I want to forward this portion of a message I received from Pete Saussy and see if there is anyone down there that can help him with some measurements.. January 16, 2010

Live Oak Growth Rates ... d4cf?hl=en ENTS, These are two photos of a Live Oak Stump with approx., 45-50 rings. The stump was 32 x 36' Dia., some of the radial growth was up to 1/2" thats quite speedy. I see many stumps like this from Katrina and have many more examples of growth rates in Live Oak. I also visted a old friend last weekend, the Friendship Oak in Long Beach, CBH-23, Height-39'. The spread on this tree is one of the greatest of all Live Oaks I've done in the past 4 years, 169.5'! It looks very similar to the famous Angel Oak in the Carolina's.... more » By lawrence tucei jr - Jan 14, 2010
