Hello, I hope your tree doesn't fall victim to the mountain pine beatle.
We have lots of pine trees here in British Columbia to the north of you, i wonder what our highest pine tree is.
We owned a motel/campground for 12 years and enjoyed doing that.

Dis you know, Northern Oregon will witness a Total Eclipse of the Sun in 2017, you only have ten years to wait, that event will fill all the motel rooms around you at that time
