Jepson Field Book volume 10 page 20
Willits to Sherwood  have variable or very variable leaves but none have just this variation -- because the leaves are mostly wholly entire or very serrate. - North slope & south slope -- all alike to Redwood on the River Eel but not in this country. - Willits building very rapidly. - Deserted and abandoned places between Willits and Sherwood being reoccupied now! - Rather dense virgin Douglas Spruce forests at Sherwood. - Mostly the lower slopes and flats bare here! Crowns covered. Too much water probably oozing out of lower slopes & on flats. ::::::::: June 5, 1903  - Red Oak in the Sherwood forests is California Chestnut (Castanopsis chrysophylla) and is cut for its bark just the same as Tan Oak. It is to these woodsmen here "Tanbark". There are to these men two kinds of Tanbark: Tan Oak and Red Oak! It would seem that they never heard of Chestnut.  There are not many of these trees. They are scattered through the forest like giant sentinels, one here and there at rather long intervals compared with the associated trees. It was with a great pang of the heart that I heard this morning that the hide of this tree went into Tanbark cords indifferently with Tan Oak bark.
