Southern live oaks in Audubon Park in New Orleans

Here 2 trees are described in Audubon Park in New Orleans (Orleans Parish).

Audubon Park is located west of the Garden District of New Orleans and used to be a plantation in colonial days.

It can be reached easily with the historical tram (stop at Loyola University). The park is named in honor of artist and naturalist John James Audubon, who began living in New Orleans in 1821.

In the park (as well as in the entire Garden District) a large number of beautiful old Live Oaks, with the characteristic Spanish moss hanging on the branches, can be seen, including some of the largest of the state. The Audubon Zoo of the Audubon Nature Institute is also located in the park.

This photo shows clearly that the section of the trunk is elliptical in shape, which could mean the tree's trunk is composed out of two merged trunks.
