Re: Some New Orleans area trees

Mark:
I do not have much experience being around Live Oaks but I doubt they are 800 years old. I have never read of cultivation of Live Oaks by Native Americans. Perhaps Larry Tucei could weigh with an opinion.

Re: Cercis (continued)

Don:
I believe Redbud (Cercis canadensis) in West Virginia readily comes in on bare ground if a seed source is close . Some of the best displays are along highways on cut banks. Although the California Redbud is a different species it may favor similar situations.
