    No 4. A tree on Hollyburn Mountain in Cypress Provincial Park, outside of Vancouver.

    Second shot probably Pseudotsuga menziesii, as the needles are pointing in multiple directions - lower branch foliage of Abies grandis is usually more orderly in aspect.

    Thanks! Yes, that's Douglas-fir Pseudotsuga menziesii.

    Is it definitely the same tree as the bark in the first pic?

    Yes, I thought so, but my ageing brain makes mistakes these days. This bark photo was between the second photo on this spotting, and the Western Hemlock, photo #9. But then, I could have just taken a photo of it because I liked the bark! Sorry... I took the photos a couple of weeks ago.
