By the numbers/Trees and other living things
Campus Flora and Fauna

The Pomona College campus spans 140 acres, 100 acres in the campus proper. Its natural beauty includes:
• More than 3,700 trees
• 856 oaks, of which the most common is the coast live oak
• Native coast live oaks in the Wash area more than 200 years old
• An abundance of mature trees planted in the early 1990s, including coast redwoods around Marston Quad and Pearsons Hall and with the coast live oaks along Stover Walk
• Three kinds of ivy—Hedera helix ivy, Algerian ivy and Boston ivy
• Abundant wildlife: raccoons, squirrels, ground squirrels, great-horned owls, red-tailed hawks, finches and woodpeckers
• A few bobble-head owls near President David Oxtoby’s office to keep away the woodpeckers, who had a tendency to peck against his window
