Environmental Speaker Series: Oak Regeneration in the Time of Climate Change

Arborist Dave Muffly joins Ventura Land Trust at the Museum of Ventura County for a special OAKtober Environmental Speaker Series presentation.

Dave is a partner in Ventura Land Trust's coast live oak care and restoration in Harmon Canyon Preserve. For more than 30 years, he has been on the forefront of oak tree regeneration in California. With nearly 4,000 oaks established, oak regeneration at Stanford University and in the Bay area has been a resounding success, deeply founded in science. In this talk, Dave covers the details - techniques, lessons, and warnings - that have made this project a success, where so many others fail.

VLT's free, quarterly Environmental Speaker Series is one of the many ways VLT works to educate the public about important environmental topics. Although free to the public, a $10/person donation is suggested at the door. RSVPs are encouraged.

Speaker Dave Muffly

Dave Muffly has been planting and caring for trees in the Bay Area for 33 years. Dave earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University, then branched into native oak plantings at Stanford, urban tree plantings, and fruit trees with the local group Magic. In 2007, Dave became a Board Certified Master Arborist, and designed the thousand-tree 101 Freeway Soundwall planting led by the non-profit Canopy. The Soundwall plantings became the proof of concept for the even more radically diverse plantings at Apple Park in Cupertino, where Dave spent 7 years as Apple's Senior Arborist.
