Capturing a big spruce

Katherine Bland, of Orange County, does what she has to do Thursday to get the full effect of the word’s largest spruce tree, located near the Rain Forest Resort Village at Lake Quinault. The resort’s website says the tree is 191 feet tall and 58 feet and 11 inches in circumfrance. Based on the American Forestry Association’s standard for measuring various aspects of the tree, it’s the largest spruce in the world.
