I,m a retired forester. I worked in research for both Weyerhaeuser Company and the US Forest Service. I have been retired for 20 years and during retirement I have been interested in locating and photographing yellow-cedar (also known as Alaska cedar) in southern BC, WA, OR, and northern CA. To date I have a little over 300 locations and over 1000 photographs of yellow-cedar. There are more locations I want to visit but time, money, and now that I am 81 years old physical energy, prevents me from visiting all the locations I would like. I have photos of ancient YC (trees 700 to > 1000 years old) at a number of locations in the Olympics and Cascades of WA. Some of the locations are readily accessible - others require a long trail hike. I am willing to take anyone out to see these trees. How about an expedition during late August or early September 2012? This time of year the bugs and snow are just about gone.

Marshall,

I second Ed's welcome. We all look forward to hearing more from you. What attracted you to the yellow cedar, if I may enquire?
