Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 10 page 4
Description:
Vacaville  where the slope favors -- all this is Quercus agrifolia, 10 to 20 ft. h. I suppose at the most. The dark filling of the gulches might be supposed by some to be black earth. These strips in some places run straight up and down for a long distance. - Mr. Gillispie says his Eucalyptus sells for the same price almost as oak. - Matricaria discoidea = Pineapple Weed at Vacaville. Platt says it looks like a green, very green strawberry. Thought by some to smell a little like pineapple. Coming up about yards [?], in corrals, beaten paths, and wagon-tracks. -- everywhere so. ::::::::: May 2, 1903.  The Vaca Mountains have all the common species of oaks that are found in the interior: Valley Oak (the specimens now look rather small to my eye after Willits!); Blue Oak; Black Oak; Live Oak; and Quercus chrysolepis (Maul Oak). There are a good many trees of this Maul Oak along the western crest of the Vaca Mountains. I noted a few years ago near the Signal Station on Blue Mt & now I see a good many between the heads of Mix's & Miller's -- of course on the western slope. One was fully 2 1/2 ft diam. at base, altho not very tall -- 25 ft maybe.
