003 Large Second Growth

This lovely hardwood was too small 22 years ago when the loggers were cutting in the area, trees three and four times this size. This tree has grown nearly 66 centimeters in diameter over that time period. So it was pretty small, fortunately for it. Illegal loggers would prize this tree now, but the locals protect it the best they can.
