Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 152
Berkeley ---------- No. 5298a. Quercus wislizenii var. frutescens. On North slope, side-hill trail, about 300 or 400 yds. westerly from Sugar Loaf, Berkeley Hills. 23 Nov. - Adenostoma fasciculatum. Steepest slopes exposed to most direct rays of the sun; very abundant in the Sierra Nevada & in inner Coast Ranges. Comes right out to coast but mostly only in small patches. However it always occupies its favorite habitats, the very steep south slopes. It is in the Berkeley Hills in such places and often occurs as an essentially pure stand, as in south slope Skyline Ridge near Sugar Loaf. As I stood on the summit of the ridge yesterday, Nov. 23, looking towards Mt. Diablo, the great patches of this species on Lafaytte Ridge were ::::::::: 23 Nov. 1912 ---------- rather impressive. The slope looked nearly vertical but is rather far from it surely if one were on the spot. No. 5299.
