I find the word "encino: or vairations of it "encinoso or encinosa: on a few of the maps I have to work with in my profession as a ranch broker. Mostly I find that word as a place name... such as Canon Encinoso or Pararita Encinoso. I think that it means "hard wood"... but can't verify that...

Can anywone shed some light on this word'''
