Oak Woodland Recovery
The Integrated Hardwood Range Management Program (IHRMP) is a statewide Program was established to address this widespread concern for native California oaks. Now the Programs focus is on maintaining and increasing acreage of California's hardwood range resources. These woodlands provide wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, wood and livestock products, high quality water supply, and aesthetic value.
The Gold Spotted Oak Borer (GSOB) is a recently discovered insect that has been decimating coast live oak (Quercus agrifolia) and California black oak (Quercus kelloggii) stands in Southern California, so far exclusively in San Diego County. There is considerable concern about GSOB, along with other insects and diseases that are currently attacking and causing mortality among the oaks of southern California.
