I have been to Bryce, unfortunately it was on 4th of july week. It was crowded. The highlight of the trip was the skywatching program the rangers put on, all of us loved it.

Gross and dangerous.  You should have had Mike Rowe with Dirty Jobs with you. And get the camera man down in the ditch with you.  What an episode that would've made.

So I showed this to the guys here at work. One guy spent some time looking it up on Google and the best he came up with was scars from a Western Pine Beetle.

Me, my theory is that the tree had been limbed some time ago and that those are the scars of occluded branches.
Trees react differently to various types of injuries and my guess is that these scars are that result and so is why you don't see it on all trees.

I'm very curious as to what the actual cause was.

Evidence of a Sasquatch version of tic-tac-toe? :shrug:
Funny you should mention that. I have a theory about the possible Sasquatch connection, but nobody on this forum is ready to hear it.

A Sasquatch investigator found this tree, and another laying on the ground a few hundred feet away, in west-central Oregon.  He had never seen this before, and nobody I've encountered has either.
Those "X" patterns are actually raised, not gouged into the tree.

I was just curious if any of the woods bums here had seen this before?

An alternate theory is that they are scars beneath the bark from old limbs. If you look at the tree behind the de-barked one, you see the stubs of many branches that have been shed as the pine grew.  But if this were the case, almost every standing deadwood pine (less bark) would look that way.

Well that was a crappy day you had there Orbean.  I have often wondered what a plumber says to his wife when she asks how his day was.

I am not allowed inside with my work clothes on,  everything is left in the garage. I have busted my girlfriend more than once washing my clothes with the dogs blankets. I get no respect.

Actually I have been lucky, I don't see much black water type of waste, but I  have unfortunately had to deal with medical waste lines, you really watch yourself because you will get sick for sure if there is an accident.
