Quercus engelmanii | Santa Rosa Plateau

The rarest of the native California tree form oaks is Engelman or Mesa Oak, (Quercus engelmannii). Their range is essentially Pasadena south to Baja California, with the vast majority of trees in rural San Diego county. The Santa Rosa Plateau is a great place to view Engelman Oaks in-habitat.
