Hello all. I measured three more Live Oaks last week. Two in
one in Apalachicola, Fla. The two in Biloxi are the new #26, The
St. Apartments Oak, CBH-22'9", Spread-114' and Height 63'.
The other is
the new #28, The Lee St. Oak, CBH-21'6", Spread-117' and
Both the trees are growing in the Beach grove along Hwy 90,
meters from the Gulf. Both were in about 10' of saltwater during
Hurricane Katrina with little or no effect.

Many historical homes are throughout the city, and
there is a
slow laid-back atmosphere here, very relaxing. Numerous Pines of
size abound here and in the surrounding areas, mostly Slash.
