    Can someone identify this tree? Photographs were taken southwest of Olympia, WA on DNR state forestland (elev ~ 1400 ft).

    Unfortunately I could not see the crown from where I was. However, I strongly suspect this is Pacific Silver Fir, which has a rather distinctive bark.

    Part of crown is visible in 3rd picture, with sky showing around it as though it was in fact possible to get a shot of more of it by moving the camera. Anyway there are a few Abies amabilis growing in coastal lowlands of western WA, one I visited once with the American Forests WA coordinator was growing among vine maples west of Olympia.
