Living History in Audubon Park

It’s common for oak trees to loom over sidewalks and roads in the southeast. People enjoy the protection from the sun, while others love climbing their limbs.

But there’s one great oak in New Orleans, LA that stands out among the rest.

In Audubon Park there are many big oak trees, but the Tree of Life is a giant among giants.

This 500 year old tree stands strong, giving park goers massive swaths of shade and an impressive trunk to marvel at. Aside from the redwoods of California, there are few trees more impressive.
