Let me throw this out to you folks....
If you were thinking of planting 20-30 trees in the hopes of providing some future boatbuilder with an awesome find, would white or live oak be the better choice?
Is the idea frought with variables? Yes, it is. But, let's assume the best for a moment. Assume that the trees will be well cared for and groomed (at least for the next 40-50 years) for one of our great-grandkids - all of the literature seems to refer to white and live oak pretty synonomously (help me out there Don) with regards to boat building suitability.
So...which one would you like your building progeny to get a hold of in 150 years and why?
