The Southern live oak (Quercus virginiana)

Parlange Plantation House – National Park Service

The Parlange Plantation House is a historic plantation house at Louisiana Highway 1 and Louisiana Highway 78 in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana. Built in 1750, it is a classic example of a large French Colonial plantation house in the United States.

The Southern live oak or simply “Live Oak” (Quercus virginiana) is an evergreen (or nearly so) oak tree native to the southeastern United States. The tree is a common sight in states like Virginia, Georgia, Florida, and Louisiana. The Live Oak is not a very tall species, but has a widespread canopy with heavy branches. Most of the wood is situated in these branches, as opposed to the conifer trees mentioned earlier, where most of the wood is in the (tall) trunk.
