A live oak for Larry's List

Post by Tyler » Wed Mar 09, 2016 10:00 am

Larry,

I finally found a live oak to add to your list. It grows near the town of Darlington, SC. Being that it is far inland, I'm guessing it was planted sometime in the mid to late 1800s.
It measures 21' 7"cbh X 69.5' tall X 118' avg crown spread, 126' max.

The Darlington SC oak is great as is the list. That list gives excellent insight into the range of large Live Oaks. I noticed four are in New Orleans City Park, was there last weekend, here is a pic of a large Live Oak in that park. It was a beautiful late Winter day.

I remember the tree in your photo. What a beautiful setting for a Park. Several large Live Oaks the largest is the McDonough Oak.
