SUDDEN OAK DEATH IN GARBER PARK
The Garber Park Stewards have participated in the Sudden Oak Death Blitz for the past three years. Unfortunately, results from the blitzes have confirmed SOD in several of the Coast Live Oaks in Garber. In April, 2011, Lech Naumovich, botanist and Executive Director of Golden Hour Restoration Institute (goldenhour.org) conducted a workshop on SOD in Garber.
