The greater Palo Alto area is home to a diverse selection of wildlife species due to its proximity to various habitats from redwood forests and chaparral-covered hillsides in the Santa Cruz Mountains to the wetlands along the San Francisco Bay.  Whether your yard is downtown, stretches across the mountainside or is closer to the baylands,  its landscape can be a vital source for wildlife. That’s why it’s important to know what type of trees are in your yard or which ones to plant to provide food, shelter and nesting sites essential for the survival of local birds, insects and mammals.  Oak Tree
