The Live Oak Tree, Quercus virginiana, is one of the most desirable landscape and ornamental trees, and grows to 40-60 ft. in height, and the trunk can grow 6 ft. in diameter; also has a gigantic spread up to 100 ft. The bark is reddish brown to gray and deeply furrowed. The Live Oak Tree is the official state tree of Georgia, and the tree grows from Virginia to Florida and westward to Texas. The tree likes moist well-drained soil and is drought resistant once established. The Live Oak Tree tolerates auto exhaust fumes and grows as a stately, majestic avenue tree in southern cities.

•Twig: Slender, gray and pubescent, with small, blunt, multiple terminal buds.

•For recreational areas and patio plantings the Live Oak Tree provides valuable shade. The Live Oak Tree is a traditional shade tree to plant in the south, to shade houses and offices during the heat of summer. The Live Oak Tree is a very aggressive tree, and sometimes the tree can squeeze out even a mature longleaf pine tree. William Bartram, an early American explorer, in 1776 first described the Live Oak Tree as: "the expansive umbrageous Live Oak with its awesome veneration." Families enjoy the shade of giant Live Oak Trees planted at the coastal islands, where in the deep south the Spanish moss drapes romantically from Live Oak Trees throughout the year.

Waiting April 17, 2017
Reviewer: Jonathan Dupree from Lookout Mountain, GA United States  
I was pleased with the shopping experience online and how quickly the plant was shipped.
However, it arrived looking stressed (dry/curled leaves) and now appears to have died. I am hoping, against all signs to the contrary, that it will come back as someone else noted on their review. I continue to care for it while I am also waiting to see how the 1 yr plantsurance policy unfolds before finalizing my review.
Will update when I have more to say. 4-17-17

Live oak June 13, 2016
Reviewer: David Gearheart from Blairsville, GA United States  
The trees were delivered with no damage.  The trees were moist and we had holes already ready for them when they arrived and we were able to put them directly in the ground. We're very pleased with the size of the trees, 4 to 5 feet.  I would recommend Ty Ty to anyone who is looking for plants because they take care of how they are packaged.

Live Oak purchase April 29, 2016
Reviewer: Barry Dietter from Naples, FL United States  
The five live oak trees that I purchased arrived about 3 weeks after purchase.  The trees were packed extremely well and in good shape.  I planted them the next day as instructed.  All but one tree lost all of their leaves, however, 3-4 weeks after planting they have come back strong -- all seemed to be doing well and growing.  Very pleased. Only one minor complaint TyTy should not have charged by credit card until after the trees were shipped.
