This is the bark of the Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata). It is a conifer that can attain heights of 230 feet. http://nwconifers.com/nwlo/wredcedar.htm

This is a 2-foot-high Western Red Cedar. The tree’s growth rate can be up to 2′ a year, so this tree could be very young.

Along with Western Hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla), it is my favorite conifer.

This is the bark of Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). Individual trees have been measured to grow over 300 feet tall, and it is the most numerous of the conifers in the Northwest. It is one of the most important timber trees in the world. https://ucanr.edu/sites/forestry/California_forests/http___ucanrorg_sites_forestry_California_forests_Tree_Identification_/Douglas-fir/

The tree also has a quick growth rate of 1′ to 2′ a year.

On my last walk through Kaiser Woods, I noted all the scores of young trees along the trail. The area has been logged, but there has been an agreement to leave the site for the time being free from harvesting for the enjoyment of hikers and mountain bikers.

These images were created with the Nikon N90s and the attached Nikon 85 1:1.8 lens. I shot the photos at 400 and 800 ISO and developed the film in HC-110(B) for 4 minutes @20C. I did not use Diafine this time because I wanted to see the difference in the grain when using the two developers.
