Jack London's Heritage Trees Description:
JLSHP Director of Operations Eric Metz will lead a leisurely ecological ramble for a deep dive into the story of the heritage trees in and around the Beauty Ranch and Wolf House. Most of the trees on the walk were planted by Jack London more than 100 years ago and are considered historic due to their age and their contributions to the story of Jack London’s life and impact on the property.

Metz will also give an update on the condition of the beloved 400-year-old oak known as “Jack’s Oak,” as well as “Little Jack,” a tree that was grown from an acorn from Jack’s favorite tree.

“On the walk, we will be talking about bamboo, walnut, almond, pomegranate, olive, palm, mulberry, persimmon, apple, pear, prune, elderberry, western red cedar, and the infamous eucalyptus,” Metz said.

Visitors will learn how Metz and a group of volunteer land stewards preserve these historic community assets on this easy-to-moderate three-mile hike
