Morphology Notes  ?   Supplementary collections: Photo, soil (rock). Maybe 1500 yards southwest of Sullivan Mine. Very small ′botanical outpost′ on rocky hogback, just below typical Sugar Pine forest, east side of said Sugar Pine forest bounded by Weeping Spruce growing in among the Sugar Pines. Said ′botanical outpost′ bounded on east, west, and north with dense Douglas Fir forest. Lots of Sadler Oak on upper side. Lots of Ocean Spray lower down. Maybe one Brewers Oak at base of largest tree. Growing on rocky hogback, running north and south. Northeast exposure. Trees pretty well protected through by surrounding forest. Extent: Maybe 150 yards up and down by 25 yards wide. Probably not over 8 or 10 good sized trees. Can furnish panoramic view of this region taken from Windy Peak. This was the largest Bakers Cypress tree that I found in this particular grove. DBH 24.3506 inches. Estimated height at 25 ft. Dead top. Rock samples collected from this grove sent to Arnold Arboretum, Stanford University and Dr. Wolf. Prof. Staples of the Univ. of Oregon identified same as; 12/8/39. Chlorite-sericite-schist. While this grove has been known for 20 years, this is probably the first authentic herbarium material brought out from that region. Bill Fruit of Ruch, Oregon, told me that he ran across this grove of Cypress trees for the first time about 20 years previous while running the line for a proposed Forest Service trail, a 7 percent grade from the summit of Cook and Green Pass.
