If the loggers who spared the Duncan Memorial tree hoped the tree would show their hearts were in the right place, they knew little about trees.
Of course the giant western red cedar tree could not survive the fierce winds of the clearcut. First the mosses and lichens, then the tree itself, began to die. And there it stands today: A bleached skeleton with few living branches.
There is a message there that one can not miss: Imagine trying to preserve this king of the forest, when all his kingdom lies in ruins. Soon Duncan Cedar's bones, too, will lie at Nolan Creek.
