Anyone know where to find a Valley Oak trees (Q. Lobata) growing in the Los Angeles area?

rtogio | Oct 20, 2012 02:13 PM

I was wondering, does anyone out there know where it's possible to find groves of valley oak (quercus lobata) in the LA area? I ask because I want to gather some acorns and these are the only variety in the S. Cal area that can be picked and processed into flour without the need for leeching.

More specifically, does anyone know if there are any valley oak trees growing in the Agngles National Forest or in the Valley?
