Description

Very flat needles that end abruptly in a point and are evenly lengthed and have two prominent rows of stomates underneath. Tree was less than 10m tall, and the only visible one in old growth stand dominated by other washington conifers (see longmire trail stand description in pacific silver fir observation). Brown bark that was also deep red in places along the trunk that helped to identify as pacific yew.
