Thousands of Live Oaks in Hancock Co, I did locate a registered

city hall workers told me about this Oak, I'll have to go back
it at a later date because the Homeowners were not there.
Ed, I will send some photos of these Oaks and the last two Oaks
measured in Biloxi. I also will send a updated listing of the
measured to date.
