April 5, 2021 Nurse Logs

These 3 trees growing in a line along the trail probably grew on the same huge ‘nurse log’, a fallen tree that offered the seedlings nutrients, water and protection from disease and pathogens, nuturing the new generation.

This tree outgrew it’s nurse log, leaving a tunnel through it’s roots.

No picture (of mine) could do justice to this Oregon Heritage tree!
