The Spreading Oaks

This white house embraced by old, spreading oak trees is located near Brenham, Texas in a little place called Independence.  How cool it must be to sit on that wide porch and watch the birds with a nice glass of iced sweet tea in hand.  There's no place like Texas.
The Live Oak is the state tree of Texas and the species can live up to 200 years.  According to the Texas Forest Service the largest Live Oak in the State of Texas is in Brazoria County and has a circumference measurement of 384 inches.
