Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia), also called California Live Oak, is a small- to medium-sized evergreen occurring west of the Sierra Nevada, growing along the Coast Ranges from Mendocino County to Baja California.
Living for up to 250 years and reaching heights between 30 – 80 feet tall with diameters 1 – 3 feet wide, Coast Live Oak is characterized by its short trunk and large, gnarled limbs that spread upward into a dense and broadly rounded canopy. Leaves typically measure 1 – 3 inches long, are oval in shape, dark green in color, leathery in texture, and spiny-toothed. Acorns, known to have been harvested by at least 12 different Native American peoples, are egg-shaped and between 2 – 4 centimeters long. A shade-tolerant tree that thrives in well-draining soil along the Pacific Coast, Coast Live Oak is a great oak for those living in a milder, coastal climate.
