Description: Oak woodlands, the predominant vegetation type in the most inhabitable areas of California, comprise 10 million acres in the State and have been used primarily for livestock production. Today, residential intrusion into oak woodlands results in habitat fragmentation and degradation of economic, esthetic, and ecological values. Decision makers must face up to the population pressures caused by the increasing human population in California and its shift from coastal metropolitan areas into formerly rural areas—especially oak woodlands. Newcomers want roads, schools, housing, shopping centers, and water. How can oak trees compete with these needs and demands?

Key Words: oaks, oak management, range management, regeneration, wildlife, urban interface, restoration, economics, policy
