Morphology Notes  ?   From artistic group of trees to be found on the west side of the well marked mining companyIs trail along the ridge above their cook-house. Here the Bakers Cypress was the dominant forest cover with some Sugar Pine, Jeffrey Pine, and in places considerable Knobcone Pine. To the west and above the cypress trees will be found a few Western White Pine trees as well as a very few Sadler Oaks. These will be found along the mail trail; what one will find on the ridge far above where this specimen came from I have no idea. Growing on a steep rocky slope. More or less soil. Southwest exposure. Growing on rocky soil. Extent: The Seiad Grove must cover about a square section - over a mile in either direction. Can furnish photograph of said group of trees. DBH of said trees probably around 16-18 inches. Estimated height at 50 ft. Said group probably growing in a soil rich in chromium, which might account in a way for the size and number of cones.
