We finally got a picture on one of our tree pages of the largest Sitka Spruce in the USA.
Scroll down to that particular photo. Click to enlarge.
Its not as big as a Redwood, but for a Spruce, its a dandy. I wish I could find a photo of ours from before they built the deck. When the spreading base was in view before, it looked even larger. There are roots the size of tree trunks under the deck.
This tree is 6 miles before arriving at Seaside, or Cannon Beach, Oregon.
The moss on the tree gives evidence of why its still a green ride to the Oregon coast in the winter - moss all over the trees.
