Sunday Stills: Spooky Tree Farm

Tree Farm

Boardman Tree Farm in Central Oregon

For Ed’s Sunday Stills, Agriculture challenge, I found a photo of this tree farm I took from Oregon Highway 94 in central Oregon, as we were travelling for Thanksgiving holidays from Portland to Spokane. As we drove by, we saw acres and miles of these tree farms. You can see how closely the trees are grown together. It already looked surreal as the quote says below, and the little editing I did gave it a spooky quality. I wonder what is lurking in there?

The Boardman Tree Farm is located in Morrow County, Oregon, along Interstate 84, 5 miles west of the I-82 junction. Owned by the GreenWood Tree Farm Fund and operated by a Portland-based tree farm management group GreenWood Resources, this 25,000-acres land consist of thousands and thousands of hybrid poplar trees. The trees are neatly arranged in evenly spaced rows, and they are about the same size, same height and same thickness. It’s such a surreal sight that GreenWood Resources would conduct group tours for those visitors willing to invest some time and effort.

Visit their website to see some more photos; they’re very unusual, not something you would see every day.

Along the Columbia Rive gorge was some beautiful late autumn scenery (not a tree farm but natural trees, this time!)

These photos are my fifth and final entry into the 5 Day Challenge.


I was invited by Terry, from Through the Lens of My Life to participate in the Five Days Challenge, which asks us to post five photos, one per day for five days, and to write a story to go with each photo. For each day that we post we are supposed to invite one person to participate.

Today I’m inviting Ed from Sunday Stills, who already takes amazing photos on his blog. Stop by and take a look! If you would like to participate, post a photo every day for five days and write a story to go along with each photo. Your story can be fiction or non-fiction. It can be a short paragraph, a page, or a poem. Each day, please select one person to carry on the challenge. The challenge is not mandatory and can be refused. I hope you accept and have fun!

  1. Thanks for participating in the challenge and thanks for the links!
    I think what makes the tree farm kind of eerie is the regularity of the trees… nature forced to conform with some sort of unnatural geometry! I like the way you’ve captured the rows receding into the darkness.
    The River Gorge photo is gorgeous! The orange really pops out!

  2. Sounds like a fun challenge – I am going to try that. I am very new to blogging, but enjoying it so far. I am looking to get involved in link ups and stuff like that, but don’t really understand how! I will try inviting some of my blogging friends to take part in this challenge and see how it goes…
    Thanks

I decided to google the farm to read up on it and noticed a few links down, it said terriwebsterschrandt.com!!! I looked at Ryan and said …. What the heck?? What a crazy coincidence!! I pulled up your blog and see that you blogged about this amazing tree farm! So cool 🙂 I’ll be following your blog now, for sure. Can’t wait to see you for the wedding. Xo
