- Two snow-falls last winter, each 18 inches. Broke down Tan Oak trees, being broad leaved evergreen, but mostly broke off limbs. Such trees will not peel or not readily. Goose-pen trees, long ago injured by fire, often do not peel readily.
- Where the hills are very steep and it is next to impossible to draw up a sled, Tan Oak trees, 5 to 7 in. diam. are cut and the bark piled on two of them. The load is then drawn down hill by two horses. Its a sight to see such a load come down the hill.
- Cornus Nuttallii, leaves in terminal rosettes of 4's (being opposite). It stump sprouts.
August 6, 1907.
- Noticed a Berberis pinnata plant in woods today; stem 15 inches high, unbranched, with a tuft of leaves on top. This species is not uncommon in the Douglas Fir-Redwood woods. [This seems more likely to have been B. aquifolium. - W.L.J. Jan. 1920.]
- Taxus brevifolia, 5 ft. 10 in. circ. at 1 ft. a.g., trunk clear for 4 ft. above ground. Main trunk through tree. 38 ft. h., broad-crowned.
- Tan Oak, one photographed for Sackett, 2 1/2 ft. diam. and 143 feet high.
- The Northwestern Redwood Co. pays _2.50 per cord for putting the bark on the car, from the tree in the woods. This means swamping, bunching, sledding, hauling. (_1.75 for the first three operations, _.75 for hauling)
