Our Twin Oak

In 1999, the Brazoria County Master Gardeners searched for large trees in our area, there were 38 winners.  Our twin oak (a live oak) is a “legendary tree” it has been utilized for many years as a navigational map landmark on the San Bernard River, Brazoria, TX.  The base of these old trees has a circumference of 22′ and has been a safe harbor for a number of critters and a favorite perch for owls.
