Open the OakMapper website

Description: provides citizens scientists with the opportunity to help monitor the occurrence of Sudden Oak Death (SOD). Using a simple form, users can mark the locations of symptomatic trees on a map and provide a brief description of the symptoms. Creating an account allows users to keep track of their submissions and to edit them at a later time. Additionally, users are encouraged to offer feedback to others by commenting on their submissions. California state and counties have limited resources to test for SOD, so it is extremely important for the public to continue providing with the locations of suspect trees.
