Hi there,

That tree is a Blue Oak. She does cast some beautiful shadows.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Now...I must admit...this might not make most husbands want to take Sunday afternoons off from golfing in order to sit here with the paper....but I will. Give up golf I mean...in order to sit here. I don't even play golf.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Houzz Escape: Off to the South of France
Dining al fresco is the cheapest way to get a little French style into your environment. Take advantage of an unseasonably warm day, set out a linen table cloth, and have lunch outside. This may be in California, but it sure feels like France. Next, more photos that bring a little French flair home.
Mel Sierra added this to 16 Secrets to a Soothing Home
The beauty of nature can help you adorn your home. There is no replacement for a gorgeous tree like the one here, for example. Nature brings peace and calm to our lives. We were made to be in contact with nature all the time. This terrace takes advantage of the surroundings and blends nature in by adding plants to the concrete area, using earthy colors and just making it simple.
Martine Resnick added this to 8 European-Style Patios That Invite and Charm
French farmhouse. This Northern California setting has a very relaxed, informal French farmhouse feel. Can't you imagine sitting down to a lunch of crusty French rolls and a fresh salad under this shady tree?Create your own French farmhouse–style patio by adding natural wooden furniture with neutral linens and simple white plates. Add finishing touches to your table with a simple vase of wildflowers and a large bowl of oranges or deep purple figs. Grow pots of lavender for a heavenly scent, and add complementary aubergine (deep purple) throw pillows to your seating.
John Hill added this to Tracing the Deep Roots of Design
As mentioned, fractal- and acacialike images can be abstract or real, so in the latter case, the selection of new trees and use of existing ones are important. This lovely tree anchors a patio and one corner of a ranch outside San Francisco. The view is tremendous, but the tree helps to shelter and frame it, scaling down the immensity of the sky and focusing attention on the green and the hills beyond.
Bill Marken added this to Great Design Plant: Coast Live Oak
Live oak thrives and looks best with other California natives and Mediterranean plants, such as manzanita, ceanothus, lavender and rosemary. Pruning out whole branches can control the size a bit, open up a view and neaten up the tree's form.
Open up views. Thoughtful pruning or editing can make room for a beautiful distant scene. Instead of cutting down a large tree that may be obstructing your view, invest in the expertise of a certified arborist who can open up view zones with targeted branch removal, allowing you to enjoy both the tree and the view beyond.Here, the preserved tree is essential to the success of this design. Not only does it protect and shade the outdoor patio space, but it deemphasizes the strong architecture of the home and draws one's eye toward the meadow and hills in the distance. Sublime!

Instead of cutting down a large tree that may be obstructing your view, invest in the expertise of a certified arborist who can open up view zones with targeted branch removal, allowing you to enjoy both the tree and the view beyond. Here, the preserved tree is essential to the success of this design.
