Live Oak Tree In The Corner Of The Road
Photograph - Photography
At the corner of the dirt road in Columbia County, Florida, is this magnificent Live Oak Tree, Quercus virginiana. This tree is perhaps over a hundred years old and they can live for several hundred years. The USS Constitution, Old Ironsides, is made from Live Oak's because the wood is so hard and dense that canon balls fired from an enemy ship would bounce off rather than punch a hole in it.
