Description

Weather: Grey cloud cover but no rain

I found this in the front yard at a house right beside Mclean Creek Park. The house is located right on the edge of a clear cut. The dominate overstory species in the area range from Douglas fir, Grand fir, and Western Redcedar to Alder and baby Douglas fir growing in the clear cut. Around the edge of the property the most dominant understory species where Red huckleberry, salal, swordfern and some invasive species of blackberry and closer to the road scotch broom.

In the front of the property is an old apple tree orchard. I have no idea what kind of apple trees they were but they seemed older and had not been pruned in at least 10 years. The largest patches where toward the middle of the tree, with some growing further up on branches.
