Jepson Field Book volume 10 page 158
Ukiah  - Mr. Evans or Orrand [?] Evans, Planing Mill have shipped Mush Oak to S.F. -- or rather, they made one shipment. Used for furniture, good for floors, will not check in seasoning. Valley Oaks seems to be known as Mush Oak everywhere about here. That shipped from here came from Scott Valley in Lake Co. where the stand is very fine. Mr. Whitehorn says a tree near town made 45 cords of wood beside a great stump not chopped up. - Mr. Whitehorn says he helped saw Tan Oak long ago into slabs which were weighted down for a year, then run through a planing mill and tongue and grooved, and weighted down for another ::::::::: July 1, 1903.  year. Then put on the floor of the kitchen of Mrs. Reeves, covered with oil 4 inches deep, protected for 2 or 3 mos by a false floor and then it was ready for use. That was 30 years ago and today it is like a looking-glass.  - In the freight-yard here alongside a spur track one may see now a score or possibly 30 loose logs lying around in a very indifferent and careless sort of way; they would not attract any one's attention, perhaps, except as 4 ft. or 5 ft. cordwood -- so unsuspicious are they.
