Live Oaks

Live Oaks – A Southern Signature

When we think of the lowcountry, visions of sprawling oak trees, draped with Spanish moss, forming an archway above a country lane, flash through our mind. Romanticized in movies like Forrest Gump and Gone With the Wind, live oak trees are true icons of the South. But what do we really know about these majestic trees?

The Southern Live Oak tree, scientifically known as Quercus virginiana, is named “Live” because, unlike most oak trees, they are nearly evergreen. They replace their leaves quickly, within two weeks, and the leaves remain green year round.

Live oaks thrive in warm humid conditions and grow well in salty soils.
