I've always loved nature and trees have always amazed me. These lovely wonders can really get busy! Check out this tree in a city park on the Columbia river. Biggest tree I've ever seen, and the photos don't do this creature justice! I'm 6 foot tall and can barely reach the bottom of that first branch which is in and of itself, massive to the core.

I'd bet Lewis & Clark and crew saw this majestic tree and it probably was big then.

We lost a really big Oak a couple of year ago to a storm and it blocked two roads; took two days to clean it up; love trees. We reforested about forty acres of crop land a few years ago.

What a glorious tree....I have a real old oak tree on our farm...the extension agent guessed it is over 150 yrs. old...who knows but it sure is a beauty...the tree you posted is a perfect climbing tree...when I was a kid I would have climbed up that tree in a second...:)

Jesse11,

Is this tree on the south shore in Kennewick?
