Big Pine (Pinus ponderosa)

This majestic pine is the biggest of its species ever recorded. It was a giant before the Oregon Territory was established, enduring centuries of fire, insects, disease, and human impact. Recently half of its crown was lost to weather, making another Ponderosa taller, but "Big Red" remains the largest in circumference.
