Beautiful Live Oak Tree

This incredible Live Oak tree is located on Destrehan Plantation, 30 minutes from New Orleans along the Mississippi River.  The levees are just beyond the tree with the river on the other side.  Destrehan was first an indigo plantation then a sugar cane plantation.  The tree is between 200-250 years old according to the Native Tree Society.  I took this photo on Sunday, July 24, 2016.

I love live oak. They are such a regal tree, and when I see a stunner like this one, I like to ponder the changes which have happened during its lifetime, the people it has seen, the drama that has gone on around it.

Very lovely indeed.
I seems very old, it makes me wonder how old could it be.
Thank you for sharing this lovely picture.
Have a wonderful rest of the week.
