Do you like them too, Ron?   I love seaside, windswept trees.  Along the Coast of the Southeast USA, Live Oak and Cedar create groves of misshapen trees, some of which look like they are permantly affixed in a gale, and others that have you looking for he spooks as the sun goes down.  I like them too.

I've notice the red cedar, lodgepole pine and western hemlock along BC's NW coast as well, the ones along the shore line and lowland. It's funny though. I tend to look at a tree most times for it timber value.  :D And some of those were just ugly, but part of the landscape none-the-less. I guess you could think of them as the front row crop that allows the trees a bit further in to grow better timber.  Sometimes you can go a long way in and still have crappy timber, depending on what it's growing on. ;D Those wind swept trees have inspired a good bunch of art though.  ;)
Move'n on.

Yes, they add unique character and diversity to the shoreline landscape.

This tree here is on the way to my sister Lynda's house.  For some reason, when ever I see it, it reminds me of some sort of musical instrument. It has very few branches on its east and west sides, but branched out huge north and south. If you view it from the south, it looks rather flat.

I dont know if it reminds me of a harp, or what, it just seems musical in my mind.

It's looks like a harp tree to me. We don't have them down here, but we do have quite a few fiddle trees.

  I have a big live oak right by my driveway that reminds me of that. It is pretty wide, but kind of flat. It is one of my favorite trees on the place.
