Building Namesake

California live oak

Live Oak

Quercus spp, California live oak

California and oaks go hand-in-hand. Dense forests of oak trees cover wide swaths of California; there are species that love the coast, those that dwell in the canyons, and many that thrive in California's hot interior. Oaks are as diverse as the people lucky enough to share them as neighbors. Live oaks can be found throughout campus including the oak tree collection located in the Arboretum's west end—it's home to one of the largest and most diverse oak collections in the country that focuses on trees from the southwest U.S., Mexico, and the Mediterranean region. When other oaks lose their leaves in the winter, live oaks remain green and look "live," hence the name! For more information visit the UC Davis Arboretum gardens webpage.

Information about California live oaks 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.
