You know Owen you must have spent some time on the west coast. Your tree looks very true to say a big fir. Well done.

Spent 4 months in Boring, Oregon and visited Mt. Hood National Forest and the rain forest closer to the Pacific Coast whenever possible.   The latter is one of my favorite places.  The old Hinoki in Japan look like that too though  ;D.

I'd never heard of Boring OR before, had to use gmaps lol  That's one area I haven't been to yet.  Have you been to the Santiam Nat Forest off 22E from Salem?  Very similar to the rain forests of the Pacific Coast.  Great hiking area!

Haven't been down there yet.  I was involved in a horticultural internship at Iseli Nursery in Boring.  It truly is boring aside from the massive nurseries there.  You can escape to Portland, Mt. Hood Nat. Forest and elsewhere though.

Boring is Boring. Did you expect something else?

Owen, beautiful tree. Offset in that new pot really completes it for me. Makes me want to run out and get one! But i'm afraid my climate is way too close to tropical. So thank you for sharing your wonderful work, I can admire and study. John Kirby, you missed your calling...you should have been a comedian! Still laughing.....Don.
