The Freeman Grove covers more than 4,000 acres in the Freeman Creek drainage, the deep valley just north of The Needles. It is the largest unlogged grove outside of a National park, and the easternmost grove of giant sequoias. According to the USFS the grove is home to about 800 trees more than 10 feet in diameter.

Across from the New El Capitan HS on G Grade.

Two lopsided abominations of the tree surgeon's butchery.

Why won't they just cut these eyesores out of the picture?

Are the utilities operators' bosses the same guys who head the forestry authorities in this state and who make such bonehead decisions?

Or are the property owners just Philistines when it comes to their public image?

I gotta look at these POS often. If they were in a forest, I'd let it slide, believe me. This is just jive-ass.

Mouse, I did the utility arborist gig for over 12 years. State law requires various distances between limbs and lines for lines energized at different voltages. Nobody likes their tree whacked but usually hate the alternative of cutting it down: plus, after the diameter is greater than 12 inches, not cost effective.

There's more to the explanation than I'm willing to type. Ask me for details at Facelift.

Made it up last weekend to the highest mountain in the North Coast Range, Mt Linn (8,092ft), also known as South Yolla Bolly. Did a x-country traverse across the mountain and visited the southern-most grove of Foxtail Pines in the range.

In case you didn't know; Foxtail pine is endemic to California and a disjunct species; that is, there is a huge gap in their distribution. Most are found in the southern High Sierra of SEKI but a few groves are found in the Siskiyous/North Coast Ranges.

Is it far from Pristine, CA, like?

I mean, you live in used-to-be Paradise.

Is this the one you mentioned when I posted this last spring?

Mouse, your mountain is Saint John directly in front of Snow Mountain and looks like you took that photo near hwy 5 between county road 60 and 68.

Nita and I camped the Snow Mt trailhead this summer and hiked the peak. It's the most southern 7,000 footer in the North Coast Range. I've been there a bunch.

DMT; I figured you have been all over that side of the valley from your posts and photos. Great country as you know. Once you drive up past the coyote killers it's just a truck or two of hunters, loggers and whoever you drove up with.

I probably did 6 or 7 trips between Snow and Linn this year and hardly ever see another soul.
