Oak Studies

Links to information related to Acorn Production Study

The following links will help you in filling out the survey form or will provide more information about Quercus garryana (Oregon white oak/Garry oak).

Services (Bibliographic and Maps)

For a searchable database of Oregon white oak literature:
http://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/olympia/silv/oak-studies/oak-bibliography.shtml

For help in locating your site on a map or air photo, try the following web sites:
http://terraserver.microsoft.com
This site has air photo coverage at 1-m resolution.  Coverage is nearly complete for western Washington, fairly complete for California, but there is only a little coverage for western Oregon or British Columbia.

This site will generate street address maps.  It is especially well-suited to urban sites.
