Integral stopped by and suggested that I post a picture of an old growth tree here on the property [in Oregon]. Although it is the oldest and largest tree here, I don't know the height - I think I did estimate it once - and the age is between 150 and 250 years; with most people who would know landing in the 175 years range. You can also see Integral looking at the infamous dead deer [mostly under a pile of cedar shavings] that was discussed in another thread. A close shot of Integral for the ladies. As you can see, he is quite fascinated with the deer. Well, I screwed up this shot but it still conveys some sense of the size of the tree; you can see about half of it in this shot. It isn't possible to get the complete picture without a distant shot, but it is quite beautiful and dangerous. During windstorms we've had branches come down from high above that weigh at least 200-300 Lbs. These shots never convey much but here you go anyway; looking straight up.
