TJ Howell Brewer Spruce – Heritage Tree

The Brewer spruce was first scientifically identified in 1884 by Thomas Jefferson Howell, an important early Oregon pioneer botanist. T.J. Howell created the first book on regional flora of the Pacific Northwest. The Babyfoot Lake Botanical Area was created in 1966 to protect one of the largest remaining stands of Brewer spruce, which as a small native range. The 2002 Biscuit Fire consumed most of the protected trees; only a few isolated stands survived.

Located at Hungry Hill, Babyfoot Lake Botanical Area, TJ Howell Botanical Drive
