R.R. Anderson takes issue with the blog post below about what some carvers might do with the wood from the Elks Lodge monkey puzzle tree (if it were to meet a timely demise).

So, to give equal time to live wood aficionados, let’s see what a well-maintained, mature monkey puzzle tree can look like.

You can post them here. File them under Washington and Northwest Scenery. Please include an address or intersection so people can visit them in the flesh, or bark if you prefer.
