The Duncan Cedar's immense base with its many muscular twists and turns is remarkable. Stepping back and sizing up the tree, the comparatively short life span of a human comes to mind, for the Duncan Cedar began its life over a millennium ago.
The tree was here alive and growing in the quiet forest south of Forks, WA at a time when the only way to knock down a tree was slamming a rock axe against thick wood after propitiation of the tree's spirits and those of the surrounding trees.
