Rapid response by oaks to fire mimicry treatment

The coast live oaks and one bay laurel in these photos were treated nearly one year ago with fire mimicry. Several of these oaks had stem canker infections (probably Sudden Oak Death), so I used a surgical procedure to remove the cankers on these oaks. The near-term results are impressive and show that oaks can respond rapidly (less than one year) to mindful tending of the plants and soils.

Someday many others will awake to this revolution happening in the oaks forests of California. For my part, that day will arrive one tree at a time . . .
