FwFoothill Woodland

Also known as the “Gray Pine Belt”, Foothill woodland is characterized by the presence of Blue oak and Foothill pines. This plant community almost stretches entirely around the Great Central Valley’s foothills. Very generally, the diverse mixture of canopy heights and tree species differentiates Foothill woodland from Oak Woodland.
