Special thanks to Casey Clapp and Alex Clawson from the Completely Arbortrary Podcast for reaching out and doing this interview about the wonders of conifers and the Klamath Mountains.

In this lively discussion you’ll hear about:
- The Manzanita-Conifer connection
- The relationship of conifers to the western landscape
- Foxtail pines: are they truly a California endemic or have they made their way across the border to Oregon?
- What makes the Klamath Mountains so unique
- The Miracle Mile: hear the story behind this legendary spot which is home to the most diverse temperate conifer forest on Earth.
- And a whole bunch more as well!

WOW! What a discussion we had with the incredible Michael Kauffmann, author of MANY of Casey’s favorite books, including Conifer Country, Conifers of the Pacific Slope, and the new The Klamath Mountains: A Natural History.
Please enjoy this discussion on endemic trees, and Michael’s tireless completionist effort in finding and loving conifers.”
