The Ocean spray! The leaf struck a chord in my grey matter but I couldn’t name it. I worked a summer out of McCall and did some habitat typing there. Ocean spray was certainly one of the plants on the list and I knew it but apparently not well!

Looks like you have paper birch. I recall seeing maps indicating their range went into the PNW but I never saw any while I was out there.

I know what you mean when you say the grand fir get large. I once snuck to within 20 yards of a feeding bear using a ~4’ diameter grand fir log as cover and allowed me to put the sneak on. I have pictures somewhere…

Is this Oak?
Are there any acorns?  Looking in my guide it appears to be Oregon White Oak and should have short, stubby acorns.  It's range is from about the S.F. Bay area up the coastal range up to Canada.
For some reason, I though you were in Washington, not Idaho.  So, my Pacific Coast Tree Finder is worthless to your trees.  Sorry for leading you astray.  While the leaves appear to be oak-like, I'm not too sure it is an oak at this point.

I think it was university of VTs maple program that disproved a lot of the dominant maple myths. Tapping above major roots.  Tapping only the south side.  It may thaw sooner but the whole tree has similar production potential on every side.  I mean the whole top has capillary draw in every direction. 

I was pretty surprised that my TN red maple ratios was not far off from my buddies sugar maples up in mass.  Dont know the brix but it wasnt much worse than a sugar maple.  Maybe 45 or 50 to 1.
