There are a lot of these clear cut areas around the mountain area. If you look closely, you can see the baby trees that have been planted though. Hope for the future, I guess. Kinda reminds me of my front yard now, after the tree I wrote about a few weeks ago has been taken down. My yard and its one tree is a much smaller scale, of course.


  1. I loathe clearcut. I hate how it looks. I don't care if they did replant trees. Fat lot of good that does now. I am not a fan of the logging industry at all.

  2. Thank goodness that who ever cut this trees they do replant it. It would be a devastation if our mountains doesn't have any trees. Great capture thanks for sharing. Happy weekend!

  3. The sky is very moody, watching over the trees and the mountains. I like the composition. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Never good but sometimes necessary. The clearcutting of Pine Beetle damage has begun here in Colorado. Always sad.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
