Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 18 page 68
Description:
Vacaville  - Digger Pine. -- Southernmost locality in Vaca Mts is on Pine Peak, perhaps a few trees scattering southward. It is most abundant on the ridge back of Putnam's Peak. - Platt likens my drawings of fir cones to owls on a branch  Yes, said I, and the Spruces are monkeys! - The Putnams Peak series of rocky masses consits of 1. Putnams Peak 2. Drake's Peak, east of Cantelow's [?] (had this name from      Clem Robinson). 3. North Rocky 4. South Rocky. ::::::::: January 12, 1908  - R.H. Platt says: "Washington Hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) -- 2 to 3 ft. diam. or less = average ("millions of 'em"), Grays Harbor country. On alluvial flats bigger, near streams. Douglas Fir, one back of my cabin, 15 ft. diam. at 10 ft. above ground. Bark average 1-1 1/2 ft. thick; S. side thick, n. side thinner & crumbly, not worth a damn. Bark cut off, used for fuel. Average thickness trunk, 3 to 6 ft. Sometimes badly broken in top. -- Grays Harbor country. When thus broken resembles a huge Sequoia gigantea and when the snow is heavy in the top of it, cauliflower-like, it is beautiful!"
