Long Description:
In Memory of John R. Host
(Society of American Foresters 1900)

The fire lookout tower is a hands on experience. You can climb to the top of the tower and have a bird's eye view of Fort Missoula.

Fort Missoula was established in 1877 as the only permanent military post west of the Continental Divide. Fort Missoula had a long career, outlasting all other Montana forts. Active through two world wars, it was finally decommissioned in 1948, after 71 years.

Type of tree: European Cutleaf Birch - Betula pendula - Planted 2003
