Here is a very big tree located in the Old Mill District in Bend, OR. I am not sure if this is all one tree or three trees clustered together. You decide.

Nikon D100, Sigma 17-35mm lens.

you know what cal...this looks like it could be FOUR trees!
then again, it could be two with two large limbs...or one split at the base into 4 :-p

very nice..another shot that shows the size of the tree(s) very well especially in comparison the the building, with other clues as to the size of the building!

looks like it would work for an ad shot for that building!

I'm in no way whatsoever a tree expert, but this one fascinated me and sent me running for my Audubon field guide because it reminded me of the trees once lining the streets of the small town where I grew up. They were all elm trees, and every last one had to be cut down because they'd contracted Dutch elm disease. The American elm is now rare, and if this is (or they are) an example of the few remaining, I'd love knowing about it.

Do you know by any chance?

Barbara, I don't know the answer to your question. Bend is about a 2-3 hour drive from where I live so I don't get over there too often. If I can locate some information on the trees, I'll let you know.

Cal, it's okay. Maybe it's one of those things I'm better off not knowing. If it's a spectacular oak, not an elm, and if I don't know this, I'll behappily ignorant, dreaming of a sleepy little town where even strangers said hello.
