Summary "Pasadena is a pioneer in tree protection and community arts. This book blends the two forces together and shares the community stories about the significant oaks of Pasadena. Learn about the oaks still growing in the middle of the street where citizens have protected them from execution. Like John Muir who first came to Pasadena, learn about the Engelmann Oak or Pasadena Oak as it is often called. The artwork of Jennifer Bentson is full of the splendor of the limbs and settings of the oaks. She like no other artist is very involved in the oak paintings and collaborated with many groups to bring this book to you."-- Page 4 of cover.
