The largest single pulse of nitrogen or “tree food” is the bodies of millions of Salmon that nourish the NW Forests each year. In turn the trees shade the rivers keeping them cool for the Salmon as well as minimizing siltation which impacts their eggs and spawning.
This amazing Western Red Cedar was killed in the Echo Mountain fire near Otis, Oregon where I make my home. It is the only tree I have ever found that grew at exactly the same rate throughout its life. Most noble of all the NW trees.
I caught this hatchery Steelhead buck and a cool morning in March on the coastal Wilson River. I will print him many times over and over again, honoring his life.
