What is an oak savanna?

The natural range of Oregon white oak extends along the west coast from California to British Columbia.

Oak savanna three years after treatment, with raptor pole for birds of prey to perch on.

The oak savannas and woodlands of the Willamette Valley in Oregon are where Oregon white oak (Quercus garryana) grew abundantly in the past, either as scattered trees in native grassland savanna or in thicker stands of woodland with 20-30 trees per acre.
