Old and Magnificent

10 Top Live Oaks in Louisiana

William Guion

(page 1 of 2)

Selecting Louisiana’s Top 10 live oaks from the thousands of magnificent specimens of Quercus virginiana species across the state is a bit like choosing the Top 10 bowls of gumbo. It’s completely subjective. A few are obvious choices, with a reputation and familiarity that transcends personal taste. But then there are others that ask for inclusion because of their striking beauty, unusual shape or simply because of the circumstances of weather and light that helped me successfully translate onto film the unique personality of a specific tree. In the three decades that I’ve photographed Louisiana’s live oaks, almost everyone I speak with has a favorite tree, and I will recognize those when space allows. With this caveat, here is my selection of Louisiana’s Top 10 oaks.
