madrone



Like rattlesnakes, madrone trees outgrow and shed their paper-thin skin each year...

It loses all it's bark each year? I have river birch in my yard that peels but not the whole thing at once.

I like the contrast of the geen wood against the old red peeling bark.

Well, Josie, yes -- it does lose all of it's paper-thin bark on the smaller and fast growing branches, but the larger branches and trunks form a more regular bark, especially on the slow-growing shady side..

Well, I did boost the brightness and contrast just slightly, but that is the way the madrones actually DO look... They have that beautiful mahogany color, and are really interesting when wet...

The place I hike to has a madrone grove at the very top -- it's my reward for dragging my sorry butt up there...
