Several oak species new to campus, or rarely seen here, were planted in 2003 by Magic, Inc., of Palo Alto. The plants were small, and in some cases only acorns: Q. calliprinos (Palestine oak), Q. engelmannii (Engelmann oak), and Q. parvula var. shrevei (Shreve oak). Three Mexican oak acorns also were planted: Q. greggii, Q. diversifolia, and Q. mexicana.
A Q. engelmannii hybrid with Q. castaneifolia is at the Galvez Street planting. A recovering tree on Serra Street seems true to species, however. A terribly stunted individual is at the Palo Road planting.
