Tallahassee has Old Florida Charm

Tallahassee Oak Canopy over RoadLining the streets of this historic town are Live Oaks. These oaks are a large spreading tree that grow in sandy soil. Their limbs go out horizontally for long distances without breaking off, creating a huge canopy. Live Oaks often support other plants, like Spanish Moss, which hangs down and gives the trees a striking appearance. Back in the day, when there were dirt roads and horse drawn carriages, the locals realized the temperature was about 25 degrees hotter in the sun, so they planted these trees along the main roads which are now tiny 2-lane paved roads. You can drive under these beautiful trees in the shade for miles on end. It's a unique feature to the area.
