UC Oaks

UC Oaks provides science-based information on California’s oak woodland ecology, management, and conservation. It is a repository of over 30 years of science-based research and outreach conducted during 1986 to 2010 by the UC Integrated Hardwood Range Management Program (IHRMP), a collaboration among the University of California, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.


Oak Woodland Management Videos

These videos are part of a 2011 UC Cooperative Extension webinar workshop on oak management. The concepts are based on the UC ANR booklet, "Guidelines for Managing California's Hardwood Rangelands."
