In 2015 I focused my efforts on locating the very oldest and largest oaks in Louisiana. I called it the "30-something project" since I was trying to track down trees with girths of 30 feet or more.  Many of these trees had not been recorded since they were registered on the Live Oak Society's rolls -- anywhere from 40 to 75 years past.  You can read the stories of this project on my Blog: the 100 Oaks Project.
