Quercus agrifolia

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Fagales Fagaceae Quercus

Coast live oak.

The tree is all over the place. It blooms in March.

Trees on the Wilcox (Douglas Family Preserve)

This oak tree, on Jesusita trail, was badly burned by the Jesusita fire. For the latter half of 2009 it appeared dead, a blackened trunk, but less than a year after the fire it was putting out shoots — not from the base, as most other trees/shrubs did — but from the branches themselves.
