In the spring, madrones are covered with white bell-shaped flowers. By autumn, their branches are dressed in clusters of orange-red berries.
“ I feel such peace knowing I selected this final resting place for our family. ”
- Marjorie Wolosz
Hiking on a hot day? Place your palm on the bark of a madrone, whose bark is cool to the touch even on the hottest days.
A madrone’s outer bark will peel to reveal new bark that appears green, chartreuse, or orange before darkening into red.
