Paco Garin's Facebook Posts of Iturraran's Oaks

Quercus hypoxantha

I first met Francisco (Paco) Garin Garcia over e-mail correspondence in August 2016. Since that day, we have kept a digital link open from time to time. In October 2019, I visited the Iturraran Botanical Garden with my wife Hana and had a warm, long guided tour of the garden and its trees. Paco started publishing a daily post on the oak trees group on Facebook that I manage, each with the description of an oak species in the Iturraran collection. During December 2021, I decided to gather the posts in alphabetical order, with links that will allow the visitor to easily search and navigate through the posts. This work has created a catalog of sorts, an easy-to-use source of useful knowledge and information about oaks. The list of posts can be viewed in a Google Sheets file that you can access by clicking on the link below:
