    Description

    An Oak Tree Planting Project was conducted during 1989/90 in San Luis Obispo County by the Integrated Hardwood Range Management Program (IHRMP)/Central Coast. The local media and an IHRMP workshop were used to publicize the Planting Project and give information on the status of oaks (Quercus spp.) in California and oak planting techniques. Outreach efforts resulted in participation in the Oak Tree Planting Project by homeowners and ranchers as well as by 4-H, environmental, school, community, and homeowner-association groups: over 3,500 acorns were planted at about 1,200 sites (three acorns per site). The Oak Tree Planting Project provided a good opportunity for community awareness and involvement in helping ensure that oak trees will be around for future Californians to enjoy.
