    Yeah, live oaks are really great. South Georgia and Savannah have them too. One of those idyllic southern heritage sort of things. A lot of them get cut down or severely pruned because of age, and because they start dropping branches and harming cars and tourists. Sometimes you can even see ones with wooden beams propping the branches up.

    Sadly, though, the south (and the rest of the US for that matter) has lost most of its old growth because of cotton and development and a host of other things.

    Oh, and don't touch the Spanish Moss because you'll get chiggers.

    agentrdy- But it's so fluffy and neat looking.... Heheh probably should have found that out before we went down there... my boyfriend was obsessed with the stuff... but neither of us is itchy so I guess we were lucky, or the frozen north that we've returned to has killed them Good to know for next time!

    This oak tree actually had an impressive number of wires and wooden supports holding it up... some of those branches are as big as regular trees, they needed it! It sounded like the tree had suffered some hurricane damage in the last few years as well.

    What I want to know is, if that was the biggest/oldest tree EAST of the mississippi... what do the west coast trees look like?!

    Awesome tree, it's branches touch the ground! Perhaps cooler than a Baobab tree.

    I love Charleston. Especially the outdoor market with the ladies making baskets out of grass. That's cool.

    That's Polypodium polypodioides.

    We have a lot of Live oaks in my area. I have always loved them. There is even a descendant of that tree not far from me.
