Edna Szymoniak Oak35' 6" in circumference | #2072 of the Live Oak Society
A recent article in Countryroads Magazine caught my attention as we had a huge oak growing right beside our home in Gonzales, Louisiana. William Guion is documenting Louisiana's most ancient live oaks--the oldest 100 Oaks in the state. Take a stroll through his photographs and read the article on this project. I watched our tree grow from a sapling to over 15 ft tall, but it is still growing and enduring. Oh, the stories they could tell!
