The Oakers

At The California Oakers Association, our mission is to significantly enhance the oak tree population across California, fostering a healthier, more resilient natural environment for future generations. We are dedicated to the preservation and expansion of our state’s native oak habitats through innovative and sustainable practices.

Recognizing the critical role oak trees play in our ecosystem — from providing vital habitat for wildlife to contributing to air and water quality — we commit ourselves to gather acorns from healthy, thriving oak populations. These acorns are the seeds of tomorrow, carefully collected, nurtured, and then strategically redistributed in areas identified for reforestation and ecological enhancement.

Our approach is community-centric, involving local volunteers, schools, and organizations in the collection and planting process. This not only aids in the physical task of reforestation but also raises awareness about the importance of environmental stewardship and the specific role oak trees play within it.

Through collaboration with environmental experts, local governments, and passionate individuals, we aim to create a widespread network of new oak trees. Our vision extends beyond mere planting; we seek to instill a lasting legacy of conservation, inspiring communities to continue this vital work, ensuring the majesty of California’s oak landscapes endures for centuries to come.

The California Oakers Association is more than just a tree-planting initiative; it is a movement towards a greener, more biodiverse California where nature and humanity thrive in harmony.


It all starts from an acorn.  Acorns are gathered locally and planted using traditional methods.


After a couple years a sapling will be seen.  No work needs to be done to maintain the tree.
