Morphology Notes  ?   tree, 60 ft tall, 25 ft spread, 18-20 inch trunk diameter. From Chews Ridge Lookout the trees on slopes of Miller Canyon can be seen scattered over the N slopes. Trees range to about 80 ft., narrow crowned for the upper 1/3 or 1/4; being only 6-8 feet broad at about 1/3 height from top. Cones born only in last 6-8 ft. no trees under 45 ft. noted with cones. These glisten in sunlight as observed from ground. Foliage deep rich green; bark rather smooth & thin. No real forests of this species here. This is the most beautiful species of Abies known to me.
