Morphology Notes  ?   This was near the upper limits of the Burney Spring Grove. In some places the Cypress was the dominant forest cover. Otherwise the trees were mixed in with the Jeffrey Pine and Abies concolor, while further up the trail on the far side of seasonal water course was to be found a small stand of Mountain Hemlock and still farther up the trail an occasional Western White Pine. Here the Cypress trees predominated on the slightly rolling ridges. Northwest exposure. Sandy soil, volcanic in origin. Maybe here the Cypress trees were to be found for about 4-5 miles in one direction - mostly along said seasonal water course - and maybe 1/2 mile in the other direction. Estimated height at 30-40 ft. DBH 10-12 inches. Nearby was found second largest Bakers Cypress tree that is found in California, DBH 35.1731 inches. Pictures both of the base and the whole tree were taken - of this the second largest Bakers Cypress etc. When it came to collecting herbarium from same it was found to be so badly infected with mistletoe that no cones were to be had in reach or at all. As a picture was already taken, the herbarium material, as collected, came from a much smaller tree appearing in said picture. (photo) Base of largest Bakers cypress found in Burney Spring Grove. No herbarium material collected from this tree - too badly infected with mistletoe. Herbarium material #44 came from small tree in background of picture. Picture # 3-525 136 4 by O.V. Matthews July 24, 1939. Photo of whole tree in pocket on back of sheet.
