The Spirit Tree. This is one of 3 trees that were offered to me by Jan and Vic. In the fall of 1979 they went to Spirit Lake at Mt St Helens to pick Huckleberries. There were seedlings all through the gravel parking lot. They took 3 home. On May 18, 1980 Mt St Helens erupted wiping out Spirit Lake.
One tree went directly into the ground and now about 18' tall in their front yard. The other into a pot until 2010 and then into the ground. Now about 10' tall. The 3rd (this one), has been in a pot since 1979. I will take it out to the farm and plant it.
I'll call this one Harry Truman. Thank you Ward and Sophie. Thank you Jan & Vic.
