Thursday Tree Love: My Favorite Live Oak


“When we are OPEN, we have freedom, courage and creativity – not just to explore uncharted territories where intuition may lead, but also to move beyond limits.”

― Zamm Zamudio, Intuition: Discover the Inner Workings of our World –

This is my favorite live oak so far in southeastern North Carolina. It lives in a city park near a lake encircled by a five mile trail. Southern Live Oaks (Quercus Virginiana) are famous for their large, low, spreading branches. Some branches may even rest on the ground like South Carolina’s Angel Oak which I hope to visit one day.

I hope this gives you an idea of the tree’s size.

Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Parul Thankur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. For more tree love, visit:

  1. Thank you for sharing!!.. it is a beautiful tree indeed!!… I love every tree, do not have a particular one, although I do like a weeping willow…. 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
    (Irish Saying)

    • Oh, I love weeping willows. It seems like the ones I’ve seen around here are hard to get to, but one of these days, I will. I’m glad you love every tree. Each one is special. Thanks for visiting and the lovely poem!

  2. Beautiful and resilient 🙂

    • Yes! I was not consciously aware of the resiliency, but that is clearly part of what makes this tree so special and draws me closer. Thanks, Rosaliene. 🙂

  3. Beautiful photos Jo! The first tree so nicely goes with my post this time about imagination. Happy to read your blog and well done! 🙂

  4. Wow, just looking at this tree makes me feel bloomed. A good tree for little ones to play under, I guess a good one to climb as well.

  5. Wow!! Massive Majestic tree indeed! Thanks for sharing JoAnna! 🙂

  6. Beautiful photos, JoAnna! I live in a neighborhood with many live oaks. they are wonderful trees! 🙂

  7. Thanks for that love Oak. I would love to see one. And so sweet of you too to be in one of the pictures. Loved seeing you more ❤ Thank you JoAnna for your love and encouragement.
    I am so grateful. See you around on the 12th!

  8. Yes…this tree is majestic! There’s a live oak right outside my office window. No matter how many times I try, I simply cannot capture its awesomeness in one shot. It’s an amazing tree. You did a superb job with the shot!
