M. D. Vaden & Trees are my Fave

I can't even remember if I posted in this section - so why not

My work is trees and landscape design, but trees is basically my favorite part. Started at golf courses in the 80's, and volunteered to prune everything. Began business in the pruning niche too. Am a Certified Arborist now.

A lot of my tree care and design seems influenced by my hobby of hiking and camping. I like time around trees and forests. That does not mean letting landscapes go wild, but noticing how trees develop in the wild as well, and applying whatever I can learn to landscaping and pruning.

This last week, my latest outdoor tree adventure was locating and taking pics of the Stratosphere Giant - 4th tallest - ATTACHED.

All the way down, I was looking to see what deciduous trees we covered in class lately, grew between Oregon and north California.

Been so long since posting this intro, thought it worth a bump due to the number of new site registrants since .... plus ... started photography too. Adding portraits and prints as well as the pruning, etc..

Shown below, a man who helped me measure the tallest known hemlock.

A model out of Eureka, who prompted a name for the world's tallest maple.

One of myself.

Very cool. Thanks for bumping this thread.

As a woodworker who builds custom furniture, I see the beauty of those trees in more ways than one.

Hi everyone, I am new this forum. I am a landscaper and own and operate a company in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. I've always wanted to spend more time with woodworking. This thread is very inspirational.

Used to do woodworking when in school, for 6 years. Surprising that I never ended up as a professional woodworker.

For those in the landscape or tree trade ... great profession to find and try out different wood samples.

My once in a while thing these days is making hiking sticks from trees ore limbs I find when pruning.

A couple more pics ...
