” The Nimpkish Island trees are especially significant because they are youthful, vigorous, Douglas Fir specimens which have reached the height of 300 feet. They are still actively growing, similarly, the redwoods in redwood park Cal. (340 feet) have ceased growing. There is a possibility that the Nimpkish trees over the next 50 years could grow to excede 348 feet and would thus be the tallest trees in North America if not the world.”
