Jepson Field Book volume 31 page 110
Tuttletown, Tuolumne Co. ----------  - At Tuttletown, 1/4 mile below, at foot of dump of Patterson Mine, there are three Cork Oak trees. Planted in 1858 according to the label on a sample of the bark in the Jamestown display of Tuolumne products. The trees measure as follows:                                Height    Trunk Height    Circumference at 6 ft. West Tree            72 feet          26 ft.                  60 inches Central Tree        78 feet        30 ft.                    62    " East Tree              52 feet        18 ft.                    58    "    The trees stand in a row in the bottom of a gulch. They have the best of soil and moisture conditions, and are fine healthy trees. The trunks on the two largest trees have been somewhat abused in taking off bark. Moreover on one trunk spikes have been ::::::::: June 26, 1915 ----------  driven in to the ultimate injury of the trunk. Bark averages 1 3/4 to 2 1/8 inches in thickness. ---------- June 28, 1915    Rode down the river road to Parrott's Ferry, Stanislaus River. There is an Adenostoma fasciculatum belt which we pass thru. We also find a great quantity of Heteromeles arbutifolia in fl. The flowering seems to me to be very white as compared with plants at Berkeley.    Parrott's Ferry is, of course, replaced by a bridge now-a-days, but there isn't much travel over the road since the railway came into Sonora.
