Sequoia sempervirens Coast redwood growing in Lake Forest Park, Washington. I noticed this tree on one of my frequent walking routes, I must have walked past it hundreds of times without paying attention.

This tree is well outside it's natural range (California coast) but it seems to be doing well.

This Western White Pine Pinus monticola is near my house. It has been diseased for several years and now is starting to be a hazard. I'll be sad to see it go, it is probably older than me.

I am not sure what killed it, I know one common disease is white pine blister rust.

From a note in Bugguide:
"Typical candidates for high elevation grasshoppers in the Pacific Northwest include Trimerotropis and Circotettix."
