The Southern Live Oak remains one of our most sough-after trees in Southern California for its timeless beauty, easy maintenance, and unparalleled hardiness. They are a classic example of a near-perfect shade tree. It’s no wonder they are one of the most popular choices for almost any application in California landscapes.
A BEAUTIFUL ADDITION
The Southern Live Oak has such an excellent appearance and character that it easily fits into many California landscape designs and styles. It is also very easily trimmed into various canopy shapes allowing the Live Oak to work perfectly as a cooling shade tree, a neat and clean layering accent tree, a driveway or entry lining tree, or as thick privacy hedge material. Because of the controllable form of the Live Oak, they will make a great addition to any Southern California yard.
EASY AND CLEAN
Southern Live Oaks have thick, dark-colored, evergreen foliage and are incredibly robust trees. They love the bright Californian sun and heat, are cold hardy, as well as drought and wind tolerant. Live Oaks are clean trees and require little maintenance to keep them looking great and healthy. This all combines to make a tree that will look wonderful in your yard for years and years to come, while requiring little effort from you. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the character and appeal Southern Live Oak trees will bring to your yard.
A TIMELESS CLASSIC
There’s no denying the heritage of Oak trees. We’ve all heard about 300-year-old oaks surrounded by rich histories. Maybe you grew up with an Oak tree in your childhood home that had a tire swing tied to one of its sturdy limbs. You may have climbed an Oak tree’s sprawling branches or carved your name in the strong bark. Southern Live Oaks also hail from this traditional line of trees and can grow with you and your family. Create your own timeless memories with one of the most iconic and classic trees, the Southern Live Oak.
