Title: Great oaks from little acorns grow: planting native oak in the Pacific Northwest

Author: Wells, Gail; Devine, Warren; Harrington, Connie.;

Publication Series: Science Findings

Description: The decline of oak woodlands is an urgent conservation challenge in the Pacific Northwest. Prior to settlement by Euro-Americans, prairies, oak-dominated savannas, and oak woodlands were abundant in the low-lying areas of the region. Now it’s estimated that 1 to 5 percent of that native oak savanna remains. The rest has been supplanted by pastures, fields, Douglas-fir forests, and development. Experts agree that immediate intervention is needed if Oregon white oak ecosystems are to survive.

Based on science by Warren Devine, and Connie Harrington.
