Ecology Live Oak Destrehan Louisiana

Post by Larry Tucei » Tue Jan 03, 2012 8:05 pm

NTS, The seventh Live Oak I measured on my recent trip to south Louisiana named the Ecology Oak is growing at the Destrehan High School. Although the tree won’t be added to the Live Oak Project Listing I still thought it was impressive. The Oak is a triple trunked tree with the trunks measuring, CBH-13’ 6”, 12’ 9” and 9’ 5”. The trees height was 57’ and the spread was 12’ x 100’. The oak is a really cool tree with one trunk growing along the ground like almost crawling. A storm in the past most likely shoved the trunk over when it was young and it grew in this unusual form. This Live Oak is 100-150 years young. Larry
