Lowland Oaks

May 29, 2018

Oaks were once a major component of Louisiana landscapes. From the highest hills to just one step above cypress brakes, oaks were found in a variety of habitats. Today we'll consider those that grow in lowlands, such as are found in the parishes east of Monroe to the Mississippi River.

Oaks can be divided into two major groups consisting of red oaks and white oaks.
