Did you measure the oak that I had posted about in late August from the Pensacola area?

Larry,
I have some measurements from 2012, at Middelton Place, and from Drayton Hall, in 2013, that are not on your list. Check out my pictures as a couple of them are questionable as not just being doubles but just being connected several feet up. They're no worse than the Seven Sisters.

Middleton Place  

live oak  31'8.5"  (double with a 21'7" included)
            27'5" (double) 105' spread
            25'6" (double)
             20'10" (double)
            22'11" (double)
            22'1" (single)
            32'10" (single) updated Middleton Oak  I never published the spread and height and don't know which notebook that info is in
Drayton

live oak   20'5" (single)
Brian

Brian-  I remember your posts on Drayton and Middleton.     Are any of these Oaks named?   Larry

I have no idea if they are named. The largest Drayton that you had in the listing should be the Drayton Oak. As for the others, who knows?

Brian-  Ok I'll just name them after the location by numbers. I can always change them.   Larry
