Encompasses a number of closely related species of oak tree, though the true Live Oak is Quercus viginiana L. Native to the coastal plain of the Deep South, the Live Oak can grow to be 50 feet tall with a trunk diameter from 36 to 70 inches. The bark has deep, dark longitudinal furrows, and both bark and twigs darken with age. Live Oak is often seen with untrimmed branches that dip close to the ground and curve upwards. Because this species is salt-tolerant, it grows most iconically along the southern coasts, draped in Spanish Moss. Trimmed, as they are on the Troy University Dothan Campus, they are excellent shade trees.
