Ericameria arborescens is a North American species of flowering plants in the daisy family known by the common name goldenfleece. It is widespread across much of California and found also in southwestern Oregon.

Ericameria arborescens grows in chaparral communities and open woodlands. This is a resinous, glandular shrub or small occasionally exceeding 5 meters (over 17 feet) in height. It has many erect branches covered in very thin, needle-like to lance-shaped leaves 3-6 centimeters (1.2-2.4 inches) long. Atop each stem is an inflorescence of many bright golden flowers, each a rounded bunch of disc florets about 5 mm (0.2 inches) wide. This plant is adapted to ecosystems prone to wildfire.
