Today I was examining some coast live oaks that were treated last year with fire mimicry in Toro Canyon near Santa Barbara. I came across the example below where there were both treated and untreated oaks growing next to each other. The photo I believe is self-explanatory. As you can see there is no reason why we can’t have healthier oaks here in California.
To see images of the oaks before they were treated check out my earlier post Toro Canyon oaks.
