One of the wildest stretches of land left on the Southern California coast is the 2,000 acres of Torrey Pines State Reserve.  Home to what is considered the rarest pine in the United States, it offers magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean from trails that wind through coastal sage scrub community, down and around sandstone cliffs to the beautiful beach below.  As an endangered species, Torrey Pine (Pinus torreyana) grows in the wild only in this bioregion of San Diego County and on Santa Rosa Island.  It is also planted as an ornamental tree for use in drought tolerant gardens and landscapes.  It was from a downed Torrey Pine tree in a private garden, not on the Reserve, that the branch for this flute was gathered -- rescued from the jaws of the chipping machine to live on, continuing to bless the world with its spirit, beauty and song. 

All of the uniquely scaled, spiral patterned bark on this unsplit Torrey Pine branch flute has been left on, perfectly preserved with no scars to mar its amazing symmetry  It is a wonderful representation of the Fibonacci sequence and Golden Ratio often found in the natural world.  Measuring 20 1/4" in length, this beautiful Torrey Pine branch flute is clearly and resonantly voiced to a concert/recording quality Gm pentatonic scale.   Crushed abalone shell has been inlaid into three knots.  Deer leather lacing with abalone shell beads secures the bird to her nest.  To help prevent wetout, the bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the air chamber.

The magnificent Torrey Pine tree sings for all endangered or threatened life forms on this good Earth
through this rare and very beautiful branch flute!
