Description:
Pt. Lobos, March 5, '08  - The Monterey Cypress at Pt. Lobos make a splendid assemblage, far finer and more interesting than at Cypress Point. The ocean is cutting tongues into the land, or pile of rocks forming Point Lobos headland. These are regular firths. The Cypress are in 2 bodies on the two headlands or rocky points and also extend out onto these tongues of land. They cling to the rocky walls of precipices that fall almost perpendicularly to the sea. As the sea undecuts, the rocks above tumble, the trees lose their foothold and go crashing into the sea.  Monterey Cypress, western grove. Cylindric trunk, 12 ft. circ. at 4 ft., 65 ft. h. Buttressed  "  , 14  "    "  "  3 "  , 60 ft. h. The first has a narrow crown.  "  second "  " spreading " ::::::::: Pt. Lobos. Mar. 5, '08  - Cypresses at Point Lobos mostly 30 to 40 ft high, some 50 ft. h.  Board like trunks are always flattened contrary to the wind. They are often very angular from losing branches.
