This tree is in the "new old-growth" forest of Russ Park but I wonder if it was ever actually logged in this remote and steep section of the park.

aspect: 
north-facing
habitat: 
above creek on steep slope
associates: 
Douglas-fir, Sitka spruce, western redcedar, big-leaf maple, bay laurel

comments: one of the rarest vegetation types in the state, a emarkable place to visit and enjoy!
