Cathedral Oaks Oaks
updated: Mar 30, 2013, 5:00 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

I always admire the beautiful silvery trees that line either side of Cathedral Oaks Road in Goleta between Cambridge and Kellogg . Does anyone know the name of these trees, and where they can be purchased? Thanks

Hmmm i daresay the word "oaks" is involved!?

Gleditsia - Honey Locust ??? I believe any nursery would carry them. They have a beautiful canopy.

Chinese Elm. They are beautiful aren't they?

I suppose one could go down there and check for oneself but a photo of the leaf clusters, flowers (if available), bark and overall canopy would be helpful to those of us armchair sleuths. So far with 5 responses there are 5 totally different opinions, and not a one is confirmed.

332, if you read the OP's question you would know it's not Jacaranda, confirmed.

Gilbert is correct. Chinese Elm.

We finally have a confirmation!!

they are Jacaranda's

366 I agree. I would take it a step further. Snarky use of "confirmed" and "just sayin" should lead to instant introduction to Roger's WC. And I don't mean his water closet.

Nelly5, the Jacaranda's are from Kellogg to Patterson on Foothill. Not the silvery trees the OP mentioned.

"Just Sayin, Confirmed." Bra.

When the time is upon us they are beautiful (and sticky, and messy), they are Jacarandas. Lived here on CO my entire life and cleaned up after them too many times.

I too live on CO. Silvery trees are Chinese Elms lined on both sides of street between Cambridge and Kellogg. Jacarandas are on the North side and are in bloom mid April to May.

I'm with 340. Photos would be a big help.

No, they are not Chinese Elms. They seem to be more like an Eucalyptus. But what is the species if they are Euc's?

Oh yes, definitely Chinese elms on that stretch. They do keep them well-pruned, too. Good trees but their leaves fall pretty much all year, except when the seed pods are falling. Messy over a patio or other plantings, best on their own like the way they're planted on that stretch of Cath Oaks, or in the middle of a big empty area (not suggesting a lawn--down with lawns).

Like Dan said, the jacarandas are from Kellogg to Patterson on Cathedral Oaks, east of this section.

I daresay it's confirmed that there are no Oak trees on CO Road.

They aren't trees. They are cell towers disguised as trees.

I think Chinese Elms win the confirmation contest with 1 declaration, 2 confirmations and 1 (questionable) detraction. Jacaranda came in second place with 1 (questionable) declaration, 1 confirmation and 1 (reasoned and knowledgeably supported) detraction.

Sorry folks, but self/ego confirmations only add to the questionability of your reasoning abilities. If you can't use or grasp the language properly is it possible you lack other faculties, at least at first sight? The jury seems inclined to think so.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming...
