Quercus agrifolia (Californian holm oak)

Quercus agrifolia (Californian holm oak) only grows in a very small area in Mexico and California.

The leaves are olive green and have a few spines. The outer leaves are designed for maximum utilization of sunlight by forming two to three layers of photosynthetically active cells. The Californian holm oak can reach an age of up to 250 years. In the past, this beech plant was used for coal extraction and in shipbuilding. The species is undemanding and very drought-resistant. It can grow up to 30 meters high on deep soils.
