    Description

    The primary goal of this study was to find economical and effective planting techniques that will ensure the establishment and early survival of coast live oak (Quercus agrifolia Née) and blue oak (Q. douglasii H. and A.) in the Central Coast region of California. Eight treatments were evaluated ranging from unprotected seed spots to those protected by 1/4-inch hardware cloth exclosures. Planting was repeated for two years. Seedling establishment varied significantly among study sites and between planting years. Poor germination and survival was attributed to below normal rainfall before and during the study. Seedling survival was enhanced with the use of animal exclosures and somewhat by shade. Blue oak establishment was somewhat better than that for coast live oak.
