Fire Season and Live-Oak trees

Here are the photos of the Live Oak.  Live Oak have smaller leaves than Laurel Oak and Water Oak.  Also, these are not located near a stream or low lying area. 

During Fire Season, trees produce their pollen vehicles (*I can’t think of what these are called.  Earlier I had typed seeds.  But that isn’t correct.  A seed is an acorn, and that’s different from the things on the trees here… take a look.  (I’ve mislabeled the photos, I’ve called them ‘berries,).  Very soon, these pollen vehicles will launch a very fine pollen mist all over southwest florida.   

Also  Note the Air Plant on the Live Oak Tree, it is a mich larger one that the one on the Cypress.  (I don’t know if it is a different species, or just a much more mature air plant.)  [sigh, another thing to go look up…]
