Re: Ohanapecosh, Mt Rainier NP

Ranger Dan, I believe Bob Van Pelt mentions this area in his stellar book "Forest Giants of the Pacific Coast". On page 95 he references "the Pacific Northwest biomass record- 44,584 ft3 per acre" (3,120 m# per hectare) being SW of Mt. St. Helens. Will That would be Goat Marsh Research Natural Area...

Re: Olympic National Park’s Kalaloch Cedar Destroyed by Stor

I was in the area last month to revisit this great tree only to find out that the area was closed off due to the hazardous nature and destruction of the tree. Too bad. This was a truly special tree for me. It was the "Grand Wizard" of the Olympic Peninsula, if not the entire Northwest quadrant. It w...

Hi!

My name is Stefan. I developed a passion for big trees when I came across a book called "Forest Giants of the Pacific Coast" a while back. Needless to say I ended up visiting many of the giants displayed in that life changing book when I lived in Portland, Oregon for several years. I now live back h...
