Trees and Forests
Group 1

The images are in order by scientific name except for a few ( "palm tree") where I could not determine it. Groups 1 and 2 have photos of specific tree species or groups, Group 3 has photos of different forest types, tree reflections in water, dead wood, mossy trees, parasites, logging clearcuts, etc. Most of the thumbnails link to multiple images. There are also images of trees in Wild Plants, Scenics, Natural Patterns, Human Landscapes, Provence, and Environment North America.

Preserving Douglas-fir forests is a particular interest of mine, and I am working on an initiative to create a Douglas-Fir National Monument, to be located in the Santiam River watershed of the western Oregon Cascades. For more information please go to the Friends of Douglas-Fir National Monument page, or you can view or download the DFNM Case Statement in pdf format. It includes a map that outlines the proposed monument. You can see images of ancient Douglas-fir forests at Old-growth Douglas-fir Forests.
