Pacific madrone
The Pacific madrone is a nifty tree with a distinctive peeling bark. This one has found a beautiful place to live, at the observation point on the Griff Creek Trail, Olympic National park.

JoelSkokWow--a madrona at 1,835'


Voted 10/10

Must have been a stalwart of a speciman. I got my BS in Forestry at the UW. Growing up in the Seattle area I never saw one of these higher than a few hundred feet--and always within 30 miles or so or salt water. Uncanny find, thanks for sharing. Looks healthy too.

Thanks - I have no insight how it's surviving here. It's a bit exposed, straight shot to the ocean, in a pretty wet place.
