They also like Big Sur (Near Santa Cruz as April pointed out).
Lassen Volcanic National Park, and Big Pine, California. To name a few.

For purchasing the branches these seem like the cheapest websites. You can get them sandblasted or with the natural red color. I like the red. I think Save on Crafts has the nicest ones at the best price.
