Grand Old Oak

It's no secret my fascination with trees, especially oak trees. I blame my love of oak trees on my school district. It's logo is a large oak tree. Even my alma mater high school had "oak" in the name.

What I love most about oak trees, like this one in a northwest neighborhood in Washington, DC, is its strength. They have such solid-looking trunks and large, long branches with lots of leaves. Oak trees create such a wide, beautiful green canopy that entices people to pause and rest beneath its branches.
