Southside avo grove.JPG

This avocado grove is on the north-facing slope of Moosa Canyon in Bonsall. The mature trees are really badly damaged. Below the mature trees some saplings had just been planted last summer. In the larger versions of this photo, the white stakes that supported these little trees remain visible. The saplings were probably killed. This grower took quite a gamble in planting Hass avocados so close to the canyon floor. (Note road at bottom of the photo; here the road is barely above the creek, so this is about as low as the canyon gets.)
