Ode To My Favorite Tree

arbutus tree bark

Arbutus Tree,

You have magic about thee.

On bluffy heights and craggy spires

Your twisted shapes inspire me!

Winter and summer laden with leaves,

You reach for the sun yet ride storms with ease.

Bark so smooth you glisten in rain,

You shed your bark again and again!

Arbutus Tree,

Overlooking the sea,

Your blossoms exude scent divine,

Your cycles amaze every time!


Your red berries - a deer delicacy,

Your exquisite wood - a mystery,

Arbutus, you are my favorite tree,

You have truly blessed me!

by Ron Bazar

Manzanita Tree Poem

Manzanita Tree Oh So Sweet!


Manzanita tree oh so sweet!

Glued to bluffs hard to beat

Hanging out in the sun

Centuries pass having fun.

Twist and turn

You make knots to churn

Slow to grow

Time makes you glow!

Manzanita branches such a treat!

A shrub so stout quite the feat,

You weather time with fine design

Always looking just so divine!


Skeleton branches gray on the outside

But what a delight to find what's inside

Manzanita, you transform wood oh so red!

Manzanita, you do turn heads!

Rich in gifts

With flowers and leaves

You make honey and potions

Or wedding stands and notions.

Treasures in wood so rich and red

Working with you I never dread!

You finish so smooth

I think I'll never move.

by Ron Bazar



Madrone Tree Poem

Oh what a tree that Madrone tree!

Reaching and climbing so proud and free;

All I know is what it does to me,

Every time, I feel a sense of glee!

by Ron Bazar

My friend Ron Trainor wrote many poems. He was a natural poet. He wrote this poem for one of my Arbutus wood products... my West Coast Whale Knife.

The Arbutus tree was certainly his favorite!

He was always so amazed by its shapes and the incredible beauty and variety of its exotic hardwood revealed in the wood crafts for sale that I made.


West Coast Whale Knife / Arbutus Tree 

What finer tree

Could there possibly be

Than the majestic Arbutus?

Stretching forth toward the sea

Where whales swim ever so free

Each a West Coast treasure

Now the tree

And a living symbol of the sea

Come together in a Whale Knife

Adding richness to your daily life!

by Ron Trainor


This view below always thrilled my buddy Ron!

... Mt Denman at the end of Desolation Sound BC. That's Kinghorn Island in the foreground on the right.

Kinghorn Island at the entrance to Desolation Sound

is a delinquent racoon penal colony!
