some big tree pictures

ok so the huge white oak at dad's place. I was off on my guessing it's about three to four foot in diameter, and it is all hollow all the way up the trunk. The other one with my dad standing by it for size reference is a male osage orange tree. We are guessing it started out as about five trees and grew into one, but it is somewhere between 7-10 foot in diameter.Btw odd fact for the day only female osage orange trees produce the big green ugly fruit, we call them horse apples down here.

After 9 spider bites I'd like to test that deterrent. I planted rosemary all the way around m house because it supposedly kept spiders away. I proved that wrong when they were full of spider webs.

Those are some big trees. We had some big oaks close to the Chalmette battle field. (Battle of New Orleans). They were so old and historical that they bricked the inside area to keep them standing.
