VIDEO Joan's California Coastal Live Oak is on the road to Recovery

This is a wonderful Coastal Live Oak tree in the Bay Area of California that I started to heal in 2014. It was in a decline cycle due to a pipe break and flooding on one side of its roots and also because the neighbors added about a foot of soil-fill to do their plantings on the other side of the roots.

By 2017, it was recovering despite the drought that was ongoing in California at the time.

There is not audio to this slide show.

Oh, by the way, yes, if you recognize the face in the middle, that's Joan Baez welcoming Basia and me standing in front of her beloved and well-decorated "Delilah."
