Description:
Sunshine and wind make their impress on the low compact forest of live oaks. A view of Smith Island from the Cape Fear Lighthouse. "Old Baldy." Original label on slide: [?]59; From Natural Gardens (page 12): "[T]he live oak (Quercus Virginiana) is one of our most beautiful trees, with its small hard, gray-green and evergreen leaves borne thickly over a low, rounded head. The trunk and branches are so twisted and bent that "crooked as a live oak limb" is a byword among certain coast folk (Fig. 7)..."; From Natural Gardens (page 69): "This small evergreen tree is extremely abundant in most shrub bogs. The normal leaves have little to distinguish them, but since there is an aphid or plant louse which has the habit of making a gall on the leaf margin by causing an overgrowing and incurling in places, and since hardly a tree escapes its attacks, these marginal galls help the non-botanical person very much in separating this tree from others (Fig. 42)..."
