Arbutus menziesii

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Asterids Ericales Ericaceae Arbutus

Pacific Madrone.

I have only found one tree, down near Forbush at the end of the side trail that leads from the campsite to the creek. It was blooming in March of 2011.

This is a good sized tree. It has very peculiar bark which peels back.
