What better Christmas present to our GW friends from the ACS that this this report of some "New Trees" recorded by documentary photographer Robert Voit.
Here is a link that might be useful: Voit's New Trees
GREATTTTTTT!!!!!!! ANOTHER invasive species. Spring up in a few weeks time out of nowhere, and tough as steel too. One of them sprung up locally, and its not anything like any native species that lives here. I think the species name is Duplicateous coniferous.
Cellam turrim is the Latin name I saw proposed for the first one.
I hear planting a Cellam turrim limits the number of Ferrum falli that we will have to see.
Nice thing is they do not require much water.
My brother builds/inspects these. $32/hr!
Link doesn't open for me.
Impressively large cones in the upper crown.
Yep, very invasive, seen some appearing in recent years over here too.
I think I got the species wrong. After close examination of the oversized cones, I believe it to actually be the closely related Ferroconiferous mimicaci. Culturally however, their invasive nature are indentical. Please correct me if I have the species incorrect.
Its a young Abies datasendensis var. telephonicus.
First mentioned by Bell anytime. The trunk is ironhard.
Please do not collect the cones, no seeds are in. :)

They contain the Seeds of our Destruction.
