Cool stuff, Jude! When I lived in Vancouver we had one growing just a few blocks from where I lived. The way the branches grow is very unusual. I did not know they were endangered. I also remember my aunt taking us to show them to us when we were kids and would visit her in Vancouver.

Nice pic! Wasn't quite sure what I was looking at so I had to google it. What a wierd tree. Must be neat to see a real one.
