Live Oak

This magnificent tree is a native to Texas and can grow to be just as big. It has large branches that spread gracefully in a horizontal fashion which provides superb shade when mature. This tree will shed its leaves during the winter to reveal the intricate structure. These trees are planted for the future as they can live for centuries, which make them a good choice when planting to mark an occasion such as a birth or marriage.
