Check out this post about my favorite old-growth tree, ponderosa pine, on the Friends of the Columbia Highlands site. Living in the West, it’s easy to take the ubiquitious ponderosa for granted. However, true old-growth ponderosas are increasingly rare. Seeing a massive old ponderosa, looking like a Roman column, with its lowest branches 75 feet in the air, is always a powerful experience.
