Hi all- Here is an updated Live Oak Listing with new additions from Mandeville in south Louisiana that I did back in July 16. Also the latest one from McCleod Plantation a 22' 9" Live Oak that Brian Beduhn measured recently. Bringing the listing to 265 trees. Larry

Did you measure the oak that I had posted about in late August from the Pensacola area?

Tom- Not yet but it's on my Radar and I will be going over to Pensacola soon to measure it. I'll make sure to post on it and thanks for letting me know about that tree. Larry

Larry,
I have some measurements from 2012, at Middelton Place, and from Drayton Hall, in 2013, that are not on your list. Check out my pictures as a couple of them are questionable as not just being doubles but just being connected several feet up. They're no worse than the Seven Sisters.

Middleton Place

live oak 31'8.5" (double with a 21'7" included)
27'5" (double) 105' spread
25'6" (double)
20'10" (double)
22'11" (double)
22'1" (single)
32'10" (single) updated Middleton Oak I never published the spread and height and don't know which notebook that info is in
Drayton

live oak 20'5" (single)
Brian

Brian- I remember your posts on Drayton and Middleton. Are any of these Oaks named? Larry

I have no idea if they are named. The largest Drayton that you had in the listing should be the Drayton Oak. As for the others, who knows?

Brian- Ok I'll just name them after the location by numbers. I can always change them. Larry
