From a small plane at 8500'. Groves of these are seen up here; sadly many of them dead. It doesn't really look like fire damage.

Description from Wikipedia

Pseudotsuga macrocarpa, commonly called the bigcone Douglas-fir, is an evergreen conifer native to the mountains of southern California, occurring from the San Rafael Mountains in central Santa Barbara County and the southwest of the Tehachapi Mountains of southwestern Kern County, south to Julian in San Diego County. It is notable for having the largest (by far) cones in its genus, hence the name.
