About This Plant

Crown jewel of California’s native flora, the Coast Live Oak is known for its nutritious acorns, spreading crown, beautiful architecture and dark green foliage. A large evergreen tree found in chaparral and woodlands below 3,000 feet throughout the coastal foothills of the state, it is an important component of the southern oak woodland and foothill woodland plant communities. In landscape situations, it grows 1 to 3 feet a year, and some reach maturity (40 by 40 feet) in as little as 15 to 20 years. Oaks provide valuable habitat for hundreds of species, especially for nativebirds. An unsurpassed specimen for use in parks, yards and forlining California’s streets and highways, this noble beauty invokes the valuable heritage of our state.
