Description: The Symposium on the Ecology, Management, and Utilization of California Oaks held in June 1979 at Claremont, California, was the first to take a comprehensive look at California's native oak resource. At that time, interest in several species of California oaks was rapidly growing with particular concern about their regeneration, preservation, and wildlife relationships. Urbanization and loss of oak woodlands was beginning to focus a new facet of concern on hardwoods, and regulations to monitor their use were established or seriously considered by a number of county governments. Until that time, hardwood research was extremely limited, mostly in a few specialized areas, and probably more time and effort had been spent to control hardwoods than to grow and manage them.

Key Words: Quercus chrysolepis, growth, fires, thinning, clearcutting
