Palmeri Quercus Kelloggii    Forma normala Jepson Umbellularia Californica    Forma arida Jepson Acer macrophyllum  Madrona is remarkable for the way in which it attempts to recover from injury, storm or fire or rot. A rotten old stump with a single streak of good bark will put out a flourishing bushel of foliage. It rapidly covers fire or axe wounds, and is most courageous and hopeful in the way it goes on living. One never saw a disconsoliate madrona, as one sees a gnarled and expiring old oak, or weather beaten apple tree-like Douglas Oak or what not.    ::::::::: [East Fork Illinois River, Happy Camp] Trail July 18, 1907  as long as there is life Madrona is hopeful, buoyant, knowing not death. It is rarely that a Madrona ever dies, in the sense that it is not succeeded from the roots by young suckers.  No. 2925. Quercus Breweri (Garryana), stump sprouts from shrub cut down by axe. W.
