Jepson Field Book volume 17 page 104
Whipstock Flat to Eshom Valley [May 24, 1907]  only trunk and it did not sprout. Jack Oak _=Q. douglasii will occasionally sprout, altho[ugh] not usually if old.  Ceanothus cuneatus is called Ironwood and Blue Brush, the latter name on account of the general hue of the shrub and not on account of the color of the flowers. I have seen it sprout where the roots were exposed by washing on a bank. I have seen Jack Oak (Quercus Douglasii) sprout in the same way. There is a case of that on Sheep Creek.  Ralph Hopping says: I grubbed up a Populus Fremonti by its roots cutting the roots ::::::::: [Whipstock Flat to Eshom Valley] May 24, 1907  off 2 or 3 feet below ground. As I left the hole open I had the finest grove of cottonwood you ever saw."  -Quercus lobata: From Whipstock Flat to Eshom I noticed again the tall slender poles of this species growing in the open which I have before noted on p. of this volume. I measured one tree which was 3 inches in diameter at the ground and 15 feet high. It was unbranched except for short secondary branches. Another similar tree 30 ft. h. was 10 inches in diameter at the ground and 9 inches at 1 ft. above the ground. These diameters represent the swollen butts. Above the pole is only 2 to 4 inches in diameter.
