Texas Live Oak
Although not the state tree of Texas (that would be the Pecan Tree). the Texas Live Oak would certainly be on the list of one of our favorites. Called "Live" Oak because it is an evergreen. It produces new leaves in the early Spring. The new ones pushing the old ones off. It's a hearty tree that ,when left untrimmed, has low hanging limbs making it a fun tree to climb.
This one happens to be in my front yard and I was so happy to see that it had survived the drought when we returned in the Fall.
