Planting a Live Oak
Hi... I'm new to the forum, and I hope you welcome newcomers with questions...
My husband and I have bought a house in New Orleans with a very large, very empty yard. We want to plant a live oak, as the house we're renting has a large one that I will miss. Does anyone know of a nursery in New Orleans that would carry saplings that are already on their way? (We'd like to plant one that already has a little height.)
Also, any suggestions for fast-growing shade trees that might give us a canopy while we wait for the oak to grow?
Thanks for your time.
