Artist's Description

The massive, long-lived conifers of the Pacific Northwest coastal region in North America must endure centuries of storms to persist as they do. This is especially true at coastal Lighthouse Park, where numerous winter storms carry wind gusts of 80-110 km/h—even higher at times—into the ancient forest that occupies the peninsula. Thick trunks and massive root systems help the trees endure the coastal tempests. The tall, old western redcedars ( Thuja plicata ) and Douglas-firs ( Pseudotsuga menziesii ) pictured here often have complex crowns with stout, wind-sculpted branches, in response to the storms.
