Labranche Live Oak, MS Larry Tucei
March 22, 2009


Measured another 20' + CBH today in Ocean Springs, Ms. Growing at 1002 Labranche Ave. The tree grows atop a small hillside approx, 300 yards from the Ms., Sound. The owners were kind enough to let me measure and photograph it. During Hurricane Katrina it had 4' of saltwater under it. Every home west of there property was destroyed during the storm. The tree, the hill and a huge house west of them provided a shield stopping the 20+ tidal surge from taking there house. The Labranche Oak, CBH-22', Height-52.5' and Spread-117'.       Bob, Hope all is well!
