    with my .62 smoothbore flinter.

    First pic is obvious. Got 6 total.
    Second pic is the 2nd largest Cherry Bark Oak in the United States as confirmed USFS.
    Third is a typical oak on my farm.

    The flinter can be used for judging the size.

    My woods is one of the very very few virgin timber in Louisiana. Never cut.

    A very fine day indeed.

    Awesome timber there on your farm! Ive never seen oak like your third picture. Reminds me more of cypress. Its sure a testament to your character that you value an old growth forest more than cash from loggers. Thank you for your post and pictures.

    Thanks for posting the pics and telling us a bit about your trees. Since the timber has never been harvested, does that mean that your family has been on the land for a long, long time protecting the virgin forest? You're a very luck man to own such a property!

    Land has been in family for almost 165 years. There are quite a few Oaks that are 200 and one that is estimated by the La. Forestery Dept at 340
