All around you are towering oak treess. There are several different types of oaks found in this part of the preserve, and they are very different than the types found north of Florida. Our native oaks tend to have smaller leaves that are much rounder in outline than the jagged-edged leaves of the northern oaks. An exception is the turkey oak. The deeply-lobed leaves of this oak have pointed tips and three main forks that resemble a wild turkey’s footprint. Oaks with oval or paddle-shaped leaves include the live oak, sand live oak, laurel oak and water oak.
