Jepson Field Book volume 10 page 90
Description:
Briceland  - Len Dusenbury [?] is the man who is to use Tan Oak for finishing in his house in Briceland. - The bark pieces when taken off and turned with the inside up, and the flesh is thus exposed to the sun. - Huckleberry fills in the hollows with a dense tangle -- pure thickets of it 5-10 ft. high. It is so everywhere in the Redwood belt. If they use it in the S.F. district for decoration & draw their supply from here there is no danger of extermination as it can grow here faster than it will be cut out. ::::::::: June 19, 1903.  - There are three kinds of Live Oak in California: 1-Coast Live Oak or Encina; 2-Interior Live Oak; -3, Mountain Live Oak or Maul. These three species do not mingle anywhere or rarely, altho' they overlap altitudinally. So I find that each one is, in the various districts simply called Live Oak. The first two are Black Oaks with dark bark and the third is a White Oak with very light-colored bark. The bark of the first is thick on the trunk; of the third, on the trunk always thin. - Peeler says Redwood area on Mattole 15 m. from here consists of only about 40 acres. Rainfall at Petrolia to April 1 = 90 in. this year.
