White Oaks

White Oaks is a neighborhood in San Carlos, the town I live in California. The neighborhood is named after the great oak trees that are found throughout, which technically are not white oaks but valley oaks, a misnomer by early settlers that stuck.

Ruby is an oak tree whose roots are causing problems with the sidewalk and street. The tree was scheduled to be removed by the city sparking a minor protest which so far has spared the tree. We’ll know in a couple of weeks if it receives a full stay of execution.
