Description:
Rancho Chico Chico Forestry Station: - Sequoia gigantea, a little grove of trees, 50 - 60 ft. high & 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 ft. diam.  A hot north wind hit them hard in July 5 or 6 years ago, some of those on the outside showing dead limbs, even great patches of brown. - Sequoia sempervirens, a few trees, 80 - 90 ft. high.  Thest look happier. - Cork Oaks, a small plantation.  They insist on behaving like vines, the tops turning down. - Catalpas dying out. - Box elders dying out. - Douglas Spruces, doing well. :::::::::  June 1, 1910. - Vitis californica, trunk 15 in. diameter, sent by Colonel Royce from Rancho Chico to State Exhibit in S.F. [San Francisco] - Valley Oak. Quercus lobata Bth.
