Ojai Community Demonstration Garden Over 40 oak lovers came to the City of Ojai Community Demonstration Garden on March 15 to see local arborist Michael Inaba of Inaba Horticulture talk about oak tree care. _IGP0728.jpg Mike discussed the water requirements of oaks in detail and highlighted strategies to care for the oaks during the prolonged drought. _IGP0729.jpg It all begins with the soil, and so Mike explained the structure and texture of soil and the relationship between the trees and soil _IGP0772.jpg To demonstrate an easy way to tell what kind of soil you have at home, Mike filled a jar with soil and water, and shook it up. _IGP0784.jpg The soil will eventually separate into layers of sand, silt and clay. _IGP0790.jpg Mike passed around material from under an oak in the garden _IGP0764.jpg and everyone had a look. _IGP0767.jpg He also discussed how the amount of water an oak receives affects its growth and how overwatering increases the need for pruning and can even kill a tree. MIke explained how and when to plant near oaks, and answered questions. Thanks to Mike, many of our local oaks will weather the drought and be here for many years to come. Mike Inaba started out by giving us a little geology lesson, using Les Dublin's workshop publicity photo to illustrate how soil is made. As usual, Mike kept the audience entertained with amusing anecdotes sprinkled throughout his informative talk. Participants learned all about soil structure, texture, and organisms. SoilBuildingWeb6.jpg Mike used some nearby garden soil to help illustrate soil texture.
