  1. Gotta go with the garryana, open grown DougFir can mature quickly…appearing older than a ring count might reveal.

  2. Yeh, im with you Rusty. I read a study on white oak in southern Oregon that quantified age by size class and it turns out garryana is a long lived tree. The open grown fir in the picture is 80-100 years old. I bet the oak tree is 250+ years old.
