One of the many gorgeous books that I have been finding right here in Eugene. Looks almost like a #lookback , but I am loving my new home way too much for that. This one and several others, both fiction and nonfiction, will find their way into my shop in the next few days...if I ever get off my patio 😊. #inlovewitholdbooks #californiatrees #californiashrubs #californianflora #californiagardens #horticulture #vintagegarden #charlesfrancissaunders #eucalyptus #vintagebook #etsyvintage #eleanorsvintage

The California Native Plant of the week is Cercidium floridum - Blue Palo Verde. . Blue Palo Verde is a native tree in the Fabaceae (Legume) famly that grows in the Sonoran Desert region of California, Arizona and Mexico. It tends to grow in washes, bajadas and flood plains, at elevations from 0-3600 feet. It is also one of the most popular trees for desert gardens. The leaves are small and readily dropped in response to dryness. The common name refers to the green bark of the trunk and limbs which are capable of low-level photosynthesis when the tree is leafless. The attractive flowers are yellow-gold and appear in spring but can also appear in response to summer rainfall. The seed pod resembles Mesquite and is valued by numerous animals. The seed pods were also ground and eaten by native people, but it is said to be less tasty than Mesquite. The tree has spines on the newer, slender branches. A popular hybrid of this species is known as 'Desert Museum' and has no spines. Blue Palo Verde is fast growing and drought tolerant. Supplemental watering encourages faster growth but may result in weak limbs and shortened life span. It is recommended to reduce or discontinue supplemental water after the tree becomes established. In recent years Palo Verde has become more popular for non-desert gardens and appears to perform well in many settings. . . . #vanatta #landscapearchitecture #landscape #landscapedesign #plantingdesign #planting #californianativeplants #summertime #nativeflowers #summerflowers #wildflowers #trees #treescape #californiatrees #desert #desertlife #paloverde #desertflowers

Cork oaks (Quercus suber) and American Sycamore trees (Platanus occidentalis) across a site for a new public school in San Jose, CA are undergoing β€˜vertical mulching’ - a term used by the tree management industry that encompasses softening the soil by drilling holes around the root system, applying carbon and soil supplements to fortify the soil and increase water retention; finalized with a bit of intermixed mulch over the base of the tree. These species are easily distinguishable by their unique bark patterns, one looking like the back of a crocodile (the oak) and the other appearing like puzzle pieces (the Sycamore). These trees are easily 70-80 ft tall, and will be built around as construction begins. Thank you @arborwell for allowing our editor Fernando to intern for the summer! #treesofinstagram #californiatrees #trees #nature #treemanagement #california #bayarea #urbanforestry #coolterra #coolplanet #soil #mulching #forestrymulching #forestry #sanjosecalifornia #sanjose #carboncapture

This is the cross-sectional ring of the trunk of a giant Sequoia tree, conserved at the famed Sequoia National Park, California. With a diameter of 15 feet (approx.), it gives an impression of the gigantic size of the tree. The ring has been studied by geologists to date the age and the wildfires withstood by these ancient trees which have been part of the ecology and standing tall for thousands of years. Quoting from the information put up in the park : "This slab from the stump of a giant Sequoia tells a story of fire and survival. The annual growth rings show that the tree lived about 2210 years. Marks within some rings show that, during that time, at least 80 different fires burned hot enough to leave a scar. Mature sequoias survive all but the very hottest fires. Thick, fibrous bark insulates the tree from killing heat. The bark holds very little sap or pitch, so it is not very flammable. As you can see in the slab, even if fire does penetrate the bark on occasion, it doesn't often kill the tree. Mature sequoias live quite well despite large fire scars." . . . #throwback #sequoia #giantsequoia #sequoianationalpark #californiawildlife #californiatrees #nature #natureconservation #california_igers #california #nationalgeographic

Did you know...? The Sequoiadendron giganteum (giant redwood) is as endangered as the blue whale. Native to the mountains of California, this species is one of the largest living organisms. One specimen named 'General Sherman' has an 11.1m wide truck - that is wider than a London bus is long! Find this tree on our Threatened Tree Trail at the Arboretum. . . . . . #harcourtarboretum #arboretum #threatenedtreetrail #endangeredspecies #giant #giantredwoods #giantredwood #californiatrees #threatenedtree #oxfordshire #arboretum #endangered #talltrees

β€œThe redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them, comes silence and awe. It's not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.” . . . . . . #redwoods #redwoodforest #redwoodtrees #santacruzredwoods #santacruz #forest #norcal #nature #california #californiatrees #californiaredwoods #pacificcoast #pacificcoastredwoods #coastalcalifornia #cali #naturevibes #outdoors #PCH #pacificnorthwest #pacificcoasthighway #roadtrip #coastalroadtrip #californiaone #forestadventure #photography #forestphotography #naturephotography #trees #talltrees

"Tree Barks of California" , 2019. The open road is full of awe, fear and grace and wonder. I feel more connected and at peace with such a life. When I look at my latest Visual Quilt collage, it takes me back to some unforgetable experiences: -Seeing a full grown redwood for the first time. -Learning about Oak trees vs "Scrub Oaks" in San Fran. -Delighting in the variety of California's Palm Trees -Mesmerized by the brilliant light illuminating the cool and warm tones of Dana Point Eucalyptus bark. -Going "huh... I wonder what kind of tree THAT is?" more times than I can count. visit www.visualquilting.com for print purchasing options, the latest van life adventure blogs and to experience something new. #namaste ;-) #nomadicphotographer #vanlife #ollietheadventurehound #visualquilting #collageart #visualambassidor #earthexperience #visualheaven #majestic_earth #EarthOfficial #ilovenature #majestyofnature #treebark #californiadreamin #californiatrees #americannomadphotography #pro_photographer #metalprints #follow4like #followforlike #serendipitous #theland #treeshavesouls #treehugger #hippyonamission

Introducing our small sized redwood blocks. The wood from this redwood tree is from Northern California. This tree fell down in 1909 when another tree on the property was being cut down and fell onto it. The tree was unearthed recently to make room for a road that is now being built in its place. ⁣ ⁣ Each block is 3” x 4” x 8” ⁣ ⁣ *16oz mason jar featured for scale ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #yoga #yogablocks #yogaprops #handmade #vegan #biodegradable #redwood #redwoodtree #natural #allnatural #wood #northernca #californiatrees #sustainable #woodworking #bespoke #handcraft

I came across this grove of very tall, straight trees while hiking in Big Sur, California. All the bark had peeled off in long, thin strips and covered the ground. Can anyone tell me what they are? I only saw the one grove in 18 miles of hiking. #californiatrees #hiking #california #bigsur

The California Native Plant of the Week is Cercis occidentalis - Western Redbud . "A small deciduous tree or shrub to 15 feet tall or more and as wide that usually has several trunks from its base unless pruned into a single trunk. It has attractive 3 inch long heart-shaped leaves that emerge in late winter a pale-green color, tinged red, and age to a blue-green, then turn yellow before dropping in the fall. It is profuse in bloom with numerous magenta pea-shaped flowers in the spring along the bare stems, just prior to the emergence of the leaves. The flowers are followed by 4 to 6 inch long flatted reddish seed pods that age to light brown and often hold on into winter. Plant in sun or part shade but flowers best in full sun. It grows in variable soil types (even clayey soil) but requires that the soils drain and also tolerates a wide range of moisture conditions including no supplemental irrigation - this is a drought tolerant plant and it is resistant to oak root fungus. Flowers best in locations where the temperature drops to 28 degrees F or less and is hardy to USDA Zone 5a (-20 Β°F). Red bud is native to California, Arizona and Utah, but grows predominantly in California foothills below 4000 feet. In the garden it is a great plant for its attractive form, flowers and foliage. The foliage is particularly attractive when backlit. The flowers attract hummingbirds. The name Cercis is from the Greek word 'kerkis' which means a "weaver's shuttle" in reference to the shape of the fruit. The specific epithet 'occidentalis' is from Latin meaning "of the west" as this is where this species is restricted, growing from Utah west to California."
