Lot C: The Little Oak Tree That Won't Give Up

Photo: Diane Edwardson July 18, 2015.  A Coast Live Oak Sapling has been toughing it out for years amongst the non-native, invasive Arundo on Lot C.  It's about 3' tall now.  Several times it's been completely cut back to the ground along with the Arundo during brush clearance.  Each time it fights back.  Every few years someone doing brush clearance recognizes that it's a native oak tree and allows one or two branches to grow.
