DescriptionThe symposium, held at Scripps College in Southern California, addressed most aspects of California's vast oak resource.

Individual topics ranged from taxonomy and historical relationships to management of insects and diseases. and various oak products. In California. oaks' value for wildlife, recreation, watershed protection, and esthetics exceeds their value for traditional lumber and wood products.
