Have You Ever Entered A Tree Contest?
No? We haven't either and we aren't qualified to enter this one. I wish I could, because that would mean I own a beautiful old live oak tree. An organization in the next town over is sponsering a contest to find the most magnificiant live oak in our county. Some of the rules are-- you must own the tree and it must be still alive. You can send up to four pictures. The circumference must be measured between the ground and the first fork with out adding any bumps or lumps. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures as we have some beautiful live oaks in our county. Once on a day trip we were allowed to go onto a ranch to view a very large oak tree so all of us in the van stood side to side in front of the tree to show how very large it is. This one isn't in our county though and I don't know where my picture is. I love trees for so many reasons. I have two Arizona Ash trees and one Red Bud. John has two Pecan trees and two Arizona Ash trees. We didn't figure at our age we had time for the Oak trees, hence the Ash trees, because they grow fast and here in south Texas we need all the shade we can get.
