Oak Tree Restoration for Rangelands

August 25, 2021 from 3:00pm – 4:30pm on Zoom

Oak woodlands perform numerous important ecosystem services including scenic beauty, erosion prevention, improving water quality and infiltration, regulating water flow in watersheds, providing habitat for bird and animal species, increasing biodiversity, and GHG sequestration as well as improving soil health. Oaks are healthy for rangelands for many of these same reasons, plus they provide shade for grazing animals and increase soil water storage for a longer “green” period. The decrease in oaks has been attributed to many factors including overgrazing, fire suppression, excessive ground squirrel and gopher activity, invasive species, poor management practices and human development. The California Oak Foundation projects that over 1 million acres of woodland will be lost to development in the upcoming 30 years. Rangeland represents the best opportunity for oak restoration and together we can help regenerate vital oak woodlands, but it’s not easy – so take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from experts now!

Join us in a virtual tour of an oak tree restoration project in Monterey County. Learn what factors to consider when implementing an oak tree restoration project and how to determine if your location is appropriate for restoration. We will review lessons learned from two long term Oak Tree Restoration Projects in California. Learn how the the Healthy Soils Program can help fund your oak tree restoration project.
