Located in Mandeville, Louisiana, in a lakefront park on Lake Pontchartrain, this low, spreading live oak, sporting long beards of sphagnum moss, was planted around 1799. One of the many live oaks that Mandeville is known for, its long, spread-out limbs have grown so heavy that they need external support to stand.
