Show off your Live oak trees

poaky1June 18, 2014

I am in zone 6 Pa, but Love Live oak trees. Can anyone show off their Live oak trees? I have tried to grow them here. Last winter killed 2 of mine back to the lower trunk. It was a rather harsh one here. Anyone want to show off their Live oaks? I am growing a Hybrid of Live oak and Overcup oak here, besides the other Live oaks, but the pure Live oaks are unique. There isn't any other oak that is just like it.

I am gonna bump this post. I am kinda surprised nobody has any Live oaks to show off in Ga, though. I guess many have succumbed to oak wilt.

I don't have way show images my trees. One thing need no about live oak they take large space. Other thing you need cut bark on trunk when tree gets about 4" in diameter so double in size in one year bark gets too tight and tree want grow fast on young tree a hawkbill knife work old tree use hatchet cut bark cut from overhead to low as can go to ground a small tree cut 2 places this heal up fast by new bark older tree 4 places. You be amazed how fast grow. Cut bark early spring 5' to 6' foot straight down trunk if has Y crotch don't cut in that line down. On young tree can cut one single cut down bark. Live oak drop leaves twice year spring and fall cut bark before spring leaves fall.
