Re-Foresting California’s Oak Woodlands

Year Planted: 1998

Trees Planted: 2,850
Location: California

The California Oak Foundation coordinated a two-part project in 1998, consisting of oak tree planting in sites around the state of California, and the development and distribution of oak care information. The purpose of the project was to raise public awareness of the importance of oak trees and oak woodlands to the health of California’s environment. The planting of approximately 2850 coast live oak trees in appropriate sites around the state of California took place in Fall 1998, coinciding with ideal weather and temperature conditions. A joint effort of the California Oak Foundation, community groups, local governments, transportation agencies, environmental groups, and volunteers from the public, the series of plantings were an opportunity for Californians to get involved in caring for the state’s most threatened landscape. Oak woodlands are disappearing at an alarming rate in California, due to urban development and conversion of lands to intensive agriculture. The oak trees used in this project were raised from acorns by Browning Ferris, Inc. (BFI) and were donated to COF.
