Building Namesake

California currantCottonwood
Populus fremontii, Fremont's cottonwood

There are a few different species of cottonwood tree, but the common California native on campus is the Populus fremontii or Fremont’s cottonwood. Part of the native riparian vegetation, natural stands of these trees are found along the Arboretum Waterway and Putah Creek in our campus’s aptly labeled Putah Creek Riparian Reserve—a stream, riparian and grassland ecosystem managed for teaching, research, and wildlife habitat protection. Extremely tolerant of flooding and erosion, cottonwoods are large, deciduous trees with deeply-fissured bark can withstand water pooling around their trunks for months at a time. Their triangular leaves are green on both sides and in spring you may see their seeds blowing about in small, cottony puffs—hence the name.

Information about the Fremont's cottonwood is provided by the UC Davis Arboretum. Please stay in touch! Like the UC Davis Arboretum on Facebook and sign-up for the Arboretum e-newsletter to stay informed of student learning opportunities.
