Bur Oak

One time someone asked me what tree best represents me. I surprised myself by coming up with a quick response, "Bur oak, because they are big and reliable, like me!"

I was working in Missouri last month and I paid a visit to one of the largest bur oaks in the United States. It is listed in the National Register of Big Trees.

I love you angle when you get the close up of the bark and shoot up! The texture makes me want to touch the picture.

I found your blog through Abnormal Outdoors. Love the gnarly old trees!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Abnormal Outdoors is my brothers blog, I am pretty interested to hear some of the stories he comes up with.

Bur oaks are my favorite tree because they get so big an gnarly!
