20 grove of the patriarchs

20 grove of the patriarchs

massive douglas firs, hemlocks and cedars, some more than 1,000 years old, over 25ft in diameter, 300 ft tall.
this pocket of old growth has survived fire through the centuries since the trees are on an island between rivers.

see 'next' image for lower half of these three trees

other sizes: small medium original

Not matriarchs? Either way, they're grand! (And a lesson in fire ecology.)
