Does Spanish moss grow in your area ? I know you are not asking me, but I would say live oak with Spanish moss on them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_mossAre you near Houston? I been through there and seen some huge trees with what looked like cobbwebs all over them. You know what those are?
Yea buddy, plenty hard...and heavy .Dry southern live oak lumber has a specific gravity of 0.88, the highest of any North American hardwood.are they a hardwood.
I guess I went overboard, I did some checking. It's not the densest, but it's right up there. Hollyleaf Cherry: 0.98 and Engelmann Oak: 0.94 are more dense. I quoted Wikipedia on it being the densest, should have known better, only about 1/2 that stuff is accurate.
From my reading yes, in the warmer/wetter climates (maybe not Texas though, too dry?). I remember them from Florida when I was a kid . My Dad was a pipefitter/welder and we moved down and he worked building Disney for a couple years and all the Spanish moss. That was the first thing that popped into my head when he said "cobwebs".So Live Oak is an evergreen oak tree that is not as dormant during the winter as "reg." oak?
