That 'Gowdy' is massive and I love the look of pic 3!

I'll have to stop in to check out the conifers the next I make it down there.

Nice pics, Sluice. Nice pines, and I especially like the densiflora. It's great to see a multi-trunk pine, the trunks on those specimens are fantastic. I've got to get one of those.

Pinus (ayacahuite x strobus) just might be one of my favorite pines.

Although common and being a Scotts pine, Pinus sylvestris 'Watereri' sure looks fantastic as it ages.
