Texas Live Oak Facts
Texas Live Oak (Quercus fusiformis) looks much like its eastern counter part the southern live oak. However, the Texas Live Oak is much hardier. It has a short trunk and spreading thick branches. Its leaves are evergreen and slightly smaller than the southern live oak. Its acorns are an important food source to wildlife. It is drought tolerant but is still susceptible to live oak wilt when it gets too stressed.
