Live Oaks

The book



The Southern live oak tree is a much-loved icon of Louisiana’s culture and history, and every old oak has a story to share…


Quercus Louisiana is an homage to Louisiana’s historic live oaks and an appeal for their recognition and protection as a cultural, historic, and ecological treasure for Louisiana. There is possibly no other state in the South with such a “splendid” representation of old and notable live oaks.

Quercus Louisiana is the result of one artist’s journey to document these remarkable old trees and to share their portraits and stories with the world before they are gone and forgotten.

This beautiful hardcover book is 112 pages in length, sized 8.5 x 10.75 in., and contains both color and black and white tree “portraits” illustrating the remarkable beauty of Louisiana’s historic and notable live oak trees.
