aren’t we thinking this is an introduced species?

it seems to be popping up in human habitations and areas where humans have modified the natural tree communities.

Phil Carpenter’s lawn is one example; along the Sacramento River corridor an historical other.

I’ll bet it is a genetic match to the eastern species. anybody running this?
I think Nhu mentioned the other night that he is…

If you find more Sava, you can save it for science or eat it…I hear that it’s a very good edible species. Hope to try it out next week at Wildacres!

Great find for the west in general, but I’d assume they are even less common up there.
I’d bet they were with the oaks.
