It is generally supposed that the Live Oak grows very slowly. This is not always the case. Dr. Charles Mohr, of Mobile, sends the following measurements of a Live Oak which was planted in 1852 near Stockton, Alabama, in sandy pine lands of rather better than ordinary quality. Dr. Mohr's measurements were made in March, 1880. They are: Girth of the trunk, 7 feet inches; height of trunk to first limb, 6 feet; length of the two main branches, 30 and 33 feet; diameter of the largest branch, 10 9-10 inches; total height of the tree (estimated), 50 feet.
