    Marc, I understand this is not a for sale or trade thread but if there’s any evergreen red oak left for sale or trade I would be very interested.Even floor sweepings - wood, bark, or just some pillow stuffing.

    Why ha? There are "live" (i.e. "evergreen") red oaks, such as
    • Quercus agrifolia --- California live oak, coast live oak, evergreen oak, live oak
    • Quercus crassifolia --- encino, Mexican live oak [UNCONFIRMED AS RED OAK]
    • Quercus emoryi --- Arizona black oak
    • Quercus sadleriana --- sadler oak, deer oak [UNCONFIRMED AS RED OAK]
    • Quercus suber --- cork oak
    • Quercus wislizenii --- black live oak, highland live oak, interior live oak, live oak, sierra live oak
    I don't know the extent to which they keep their leaves in the winter, but they have the classification.

    Well, it's common to not realize that "live" / "evergreen" oaks come from both the red and white groups. The distinction between live and normal is external (leaves do/do not stay on in the winter) and the distinction of red-white / live is the way the end grain looks (very distinct)

    You have to stop sweating the small stuff. No matter how much I pronounce the L in Les, people seem to hear Wes. I just roll with it now. It is fun 6 months later when they figure it out.

    I'm always serious except when I'm joking, which is most all the time.
    But seriously, that wasn't a joke.

    Why did the tree go to the dentist?
    To get a root canal!

    Now that's a joke....
