This is my entry farewell entry for Becky’s for July #TreeSquare challenge.
This grand old Oregon Black Walnut Tree is located at Willamette Mission State Park (near Salem) Oregon. When I’m around this tree, I feel so safe and protected. They can grow to 8 ft 7 in (2.62 m) diameter at breast height and 112 ft (34 m) tall, with a crown spread of 144 feet (44 m).. I’ve always pictured building a single storry house under it and letting it grow up through the middle.
Notice Chris sitting on a picnic table in the far bottom right. She was waiting for me to take photos.
Oregon black walnut (juglans hindsii x nigra) is a hybrid of Eastern black walnut and Claro walnut. Similar in appearance to Claro, it tends to have much more purple tones like the Eastern black walnut.
Here are a few more photos of this black walnut tree. (Click on any photo to view a slideshow.)
Now for a couple of non-square photos. Sorry Becky, I just had to post these photos too.
I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts. So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog. Feel free to contact me anytime. I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.
