    What Are Your Favorite Trees?

    Of course we know that all trees are sacred, but what trees are you faorite ones to behold, or that you hold a particular fondness for?

    Oak tree
    These are very common in Louisiana. An old man amongst trees, they demand respect of anyone walking by.


    Silver Maple
    There are two full grown Silver Maples on our property, and a young one growing fast! A very beautiful tree to behold.


    Slash Pine
    Probably the most prolific tree in my region, these are everywhere. The same goes for all varities of pine.


    Bald Cypress
    Another immensley popular tree in my region. It's natural habitat being the swamps and marshes all over the southern United States.


    Deodar Cedar
    A haunting tree that is common here, particularly in the wetlands.


    Southern Magnolia
    More popular in the middle of the state than my immediate area. It's a splendid tree whose flowers are amazing.

    My father in law has one of these on his property. Amazing tree with a magnificent, flakey, multicoloured bark.

    Thumbs Down

    I love all trees. But I have always had a love & attraction for pines, conifers (latin term..meaning "to bear cones"), Junipers, Spruces etc. I have planted many species on my property. Only small at the moment ...but they are healthy, happy & growing quite vigorously..also planted some native trees to Australia for balance & to attract the birds.


    The Norway Spruce is beautiful...I would love one of these in my garden.

    Beech and Silver Birch are my especial favourites. But, I am fond of all trees.
