Oak Tree Restoration at Trippet Ranch

In 2018, the RCD along with partners from CA State Parks, the Watershed Stewards Program, and TreePeople planted about 50 young coast live oaks throughout Trippet Ranch in Topanga State Park. Since that time, the RCD with the help of many volunteers, have planted over 250 oak trees in this park.

RCD funding for continuing maintenance at this site came to an end at the close of 2022. However, our partners at TreePeople have agreed to host volunteer events in order to care for oaks at this important restoration site. If you have a corporate group interested in restoring and enhancing local oak woodlands, please reach out to volunteer coordinators at TreePeople.
