The picture below was taken in Golden Gate Park’s Oak Woodland.  The Oak Woodland is a designated “natural area” within San Francisco.  A division of the Rec and Parks department maintains these open spaces as part of an effort to conserve “significant natural resource areas” within the city.  Sadly, the Oak Woodland lacks an understory because of the overhanging Eucalyptus trees, but the Coast Live Oaks there were tall and thriving.
