Cedar Lake Christian Academy Oak

Post by Larry Tucei » Sun Dec 25, 2011 1:31 pm

NTS, A couple of weeks ago I was driving north on Cedar Lake Rd., in Biloxi Ms. and noticed a large Live Oak growing at the Cedar Lake Christian Academy. I had a chance to go and measure the tree today on my way to visit my family. The tree is located at 11555 Cedar Lake Rd. The Oak is on the north side of the property at a small ridge that runs along the Tchoutacabouffa River. The small River flows east to west along Interstate 10 then empties into Big Lake at the back of Biloxi Bay. This is a beautiful tree in the 150-200 year old range with a broad crown that measured CBH-20’ 9”, Height-58.5’ and Spread-138’ x 120’. Several nice Live Oaks were located here but this was the largest. Larry

Larry,

Sneaky. While we're all stuffing our faces with turkey or whatever, you bag another 20-footer. We'll never catch you in our competing missions. Way to go. What's the total number now?

Merry Christmas to you and your family
