I’ve always wanted to learn how to identify oak trees. I was amazed to see that we have more than 20 species here in our parish in Louisiana! Most of them are red oaks, the rest white. So much to learn! I’ve made some flash cards to help me get an idea of what to expect when I go out into nature. By the way, I’ve learn that many can hybridize with each other… that won’t stop me from trying to learn them!
