Document Description
Plant native oak tree seedlings in the Beauty Ranch area of Jack London State Historic Park to replace shade trees that have been lost over the years, to improve the visitor experience and establish the next generation of oak trees. Work will plant native oak saplings grown from acorns collected throughout Beauty Ranch. A total of 20-30 trees will be planted in groups of 2-5 in holes approximately 12 inches deep and eight inches in diameter. Plantings will be caged to protect from browsing and watered weekly for the first two years after planting. The trees will be thinned in the future, to encourage the growth of the healthiest tree in each group, with the goal to establish approximately ten trees total.
