Live Oak Tree Live Oak Super Structure:   This is an actual live oak that we recovered and made part of our Treehaus structure. When large trees have fallen or are being removed, often times arborists reach out to us to give them a second life here at Schlitterbahn. Live oaks can live 200 years or more and are used occasionally for shipbuilding and tool handles because of their strength, energy absorption, and density. You can find this tree continue a second life in our Surfenberg area of our New Braunfels park, directly under the TreeHauses.
