Twisting Skyward


The Pacific Madrone (also called the Arbutus Tree) is one of my favorite trees in the Pacific Northwest. 

I first saw it on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.  Their peeling dark reddish-orange bark and smooth trunk in similar hues are distinct.  It's easy to spot an Arbutus tree among the lush green foliage that surrounds it.  

I find them most beautiful when their backdrop is the water, and the sun hits their fiery bark illuminating it in a way that draws your eye right to it.  

You can see a few more photos and read more about the tree on this site.
