Jepson Field Book volume 31 page 174
Description:
Sanitarium, Napa Co. Howell Mt. ----------  Sanitarium, and scattered amongst the adult Coast Live Oak, Douglas Fir and Madrone are as tall and as large individuals of manzanita as those measured because they had a tree form; but the former are simply very large examples of the shrub form and would not be thought strictly arboreous. I should say that the tree forms are perhaps a matter of chance in having one trunk instead of branching at the ground and in having freedom to develop. No. 2 is, however, being pressed on one side by an overbearing Coast Live Oak and will ::::::::: 1 Dec. 1915 ----------  soon have its beautiful symmetry marred. - Ceanothus Jepsonii Greene. Fire-killed. Its dead bodies in the chaparral are very dark, almost black. - Cercocarpus parvifolius Nutt. Often 13-15 feet high. When the tree or rather bush gets old, suckers or shoots will spring in abundance from the base of the clump. It is not necessary for the old stems to die or be killed by fire that this may happen. I notice shoots 6 to 8 feet high, 4 years old, very slender and scarcely branched, the shoot about 4 to 5 lines in diam. most of its length.
