EXTRA - Photo Specific Information:
It is believed this stand of trees was germinated in the 1992 floods, on the edge of an ephemeral lake. However, rabbits chewed them to ground level (this caused many of them to fork at the base). In 1995 the calicivirus was accidentally released and the trees were then able to prosper. This photo was taken in 2004. So the trees are probably 12 years old, stunted due to rabbits with about 9 years proper growth showing.
