Los Angeles has lots of wonderful neighborhoods to explore, and one of our favorites is often overlooked. Encino, a Spanish term for “evergreen” or “holm oak,” was named after the beautiful oak trees found in the valley—or perhaps just one in particular. The Encino Oak Tree, also called the Lang Oak, was a 1,000 year-old tree, felled naturally in El Nino storms in 1998.
