The Garry Oak tree inhabits North America’s Pacific coast from British Columbia, Canada to California, USA, where it is listed with an extinction status. Being drought tolerant it can survive in harsh conditions making it a natural bonsai with twisted branches and stunted trunk. In deeper soil the average height is typically a lofty eighty-two feet. Garry Oak wood was used by First Nations People for combs, digging sticks and fuel. They also ate the acorns. Considered sacred to the God of Thunder, carrying an acorn was thought to persevere a youthful appearance. Conservation efforts are focused at maintaining and expanding what is left of their ecosystems damaged by urbanization.
