Announcing 2018's Great American Tree

2018’s Great American Tree, the Lone Hill United Methodist Church National Champion Eastern Redcedar, is as strong as it is sturdy, lifting the spirits of those who have come into contact with its encompassing stature in the cemetery that traces its history to it first known burial in 1848.

Through the years the tree has been featured in such varied publications as the Douglas EnterpriseSmithsonian magazine, Janisse Ray’s book Wild Card Quilt, and the Coffee Historical Society’s Coffee Chronicles.

Fir in Mt. Rainier National Park

 Species:Abies amabilis

Location:Mt. Rainier National Park

"As one loves evergreens, I see we have yet to have an entry. I found this beautiful fir last weekend at Mt. Rainier National Park near Cougar Rock Campground. I’m 99% sure it is a very mature Pacific Silver Fir as it was amongst a grove and the lowest branches matched the PSF branch/needle structure. How tall is anyone’s guess and you can see it’s an arm full :) "
