The Tree Cam is a live web cam which updates its images here every 45 seconds. Visit The Breakers where broadband users can see a new image every 15 seconds. The City of Long Beach commissioned a 20-foot tall bronze statue of a windswept tree to commemorate the historic Lewis and Clark Expedition. The tree is an interpretation of the tree William Clark carved his initials in on Nov. 19, 1805 not far from this very spot. The bronze tree was installed along the Discovery Trail in October of 2003 – an eight-mile paved coastal path stretching from Ilwaco to Long Beach. If your view appears as if the glass is wet, it is probably raining. If a partial image appears, it is likely that your browser was updating to the most recent image and the old and new images have overlapped. Just reload or refresh the page and the latest image will be captured. Do not despair if most of what you see is black; it simply means that it is nighttime at the beach. Thanks to The Breakers for allowing us to showcase the Tree Cam on this site.
