This described as Abies macrocarpa by Dr. Vasey in our pages some time ago, is thus referred to by Mr. Lemmon in a recent number of the Pacific Rural Press:

"Tsuga macrocarpa., Torr., or Tsuga Douglasii, variety, macrocarpa, Vasey, the 'big-coned spruce' of the San Bernardino mountains. A rare tree, differing from the typical Douglas spruce in its smaller size, gnarly appearance and the great size and quantity of its cones, 8 to 11 inches long, and lying a foot deep beneath the trees".
