Bigfoot Research Tree Break Pictures

All of these bigfoot research pictures of tree breaks were all taken by our Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies team.

Bigfoot Tree Break 2194

Sasquatches in Colorado often break trees on trails to mark their territories
.
.
We feel this marker is for other Sasquatches.
.
.
Photo one is on a trail that follows a small drainage and creek.
.
.
It has been broken off in the past and broken again this year within the last month in two separate places at 7-8 feet in height.
.
.
This tree is protected from the winds and snow from the west.
.
.
Photo two is of a new break on a separate trail about 200 yards away on the opposite side of the drainage.
.
.
It is a fresh break as the sap is flowing clear.
.
.
Photo three shows the size of the tree that was broken by the Sasquatch in photo two.
.
.
It was broken at a height of about 8-9 feet.
.
.
It marks the start of a very distinct trail that used to be an old logging road seldom used by hikers, but frequented by Sasquatches.

Squatch Tree Breaks in Colorado 06/23/14 4

These tree breaks were discovered on a remote high mountain valley at an expedition lead by Jeff and Theresa Yelek.
.
.
These have been found in other areas of Colorado and Utah in conjunction with Sasquatches.
.
.
I want you to particular pay attention to the twisting and intertwining motion of some the branches that is present.
.
.
Deer and Elk chew is present as well, but is easily differentiated by the trained eye.
.
.
Both Sasquatches and Ungulates frequent these food rich area.
.
.
The small group that found these smelled evidence of their presence when these were discovered.
.

This write up discusses the importance of understanding pine branches and their significance in the Bigfoot world.
.
The ends are easy to distinguish as they tend to be peeled. The first branch was left in our campsite in NW Colorado in August of 2010.
.
This has happened many times over the years at this camp site.
.
In that same year of 2010, we had left our camp for supplies in town and returned 3 hours later to find our tent unzipped and a small clump of similar branches left by our wood stove inside the tent.
.
This was way outside behaviorally of what we expected of our forest friends. It shows they possess hand type dexterity.
.
We also think it may have been a statement indicating they understand the tent as a place for sleep. Often these pine materials are used by the Sasquatches as bedding material has been our experience.
.
Photo two is a branch that was dropped by a Sasquatch Scott W and I came upon May of 2009. This Sasquatch fled ahead of us down the hill.
.
I got a very brief glimpse of what appeared to be a very heavy individual. The figure resembled a pregnant female in the fog was my thought at the time.
.
We think the fog masked our scent and made it easier for us to get close that day.
.
Photo three is a photo taken that day for your review. We basically were in the clouds that day in this huge valley near Pikes Peak.
.
The fourth photo is the best foot print I have ever seen in Colorado from that day time encounter. It was left in muddy soil as the individual fled ahead of us down a small canyon.
.
We found skids and slides where the individual had gone for about a 1/4 of a mile, but this was the only print of value.
.
All the rest were of a poor quality. This indicates two things of importance to me.
.
Even in the best of conditions, good prints are rare in Colorado and that this individual was collecting branches for use for some type of bed or nest is my guess when we happened upon the scene.
.
The individual dropped the branches as they fled us in the fog that day.

Bigfoot in Colorado Tree Breaks 091213

This impressive tree break was found under the canopy at a spot in south central Colorado.
.
At this location, SIR members were assisting some friends of ours with getting acquainted with a group of Sasquatches they had found.
.
Joe D is in the photo for scale.
.
The highlight of this weekend trip was a sighting of a family group of Sasquatches by Robin Roberts, Dave Ottke’s granddaughter Caitlin, and our hosts Joe and Jeff.

Bigfoot Tree Breaks In Colorado

This I consider a perfect example of a tree break.
.
It is a small Aspen tree peeled down. Your yourself break a small branch off a tree and see the peel effect created by hand manipulation.
.
None of the bark is chewed up either. This is what I look for.
.
This was found in a remote area in our Central Colorado location on 6/22/2013 by Robin and Michael in conjunction with new structures I have never seen before anywhere.

Bigfoot Tree Break Evidence In Colorado 1

Bigfoot Tree Break Evidence In Colorado 2

This tree break is like none I have ever found before.
.
It is bent over and then notched into another branch.
.
Photo 1 is a view as it looks when you see it from 10 yards away.
.
The close up shows the branch is intertwined with another branch in a notch.
.
In my estimation it would take hands to accomplish this feat.
.
We do not know what it means as we have never found this type of break before, but it obviously has meaning.

Sasquatch Tree Break Evidence In Colorado 1

Sasquatch Tree Break Evidence In Colorado 2

The first break is a double break in Photo one.Please note this is a pretty good sized tree, which would have required quite a bit of force to have peeled it down in this fashion.
.
Photo two shows you scale. It is broken at about eight feet up.
.
My son and his friend are in the photo for scale and are about 5’4″ tall each. The breaks are well above their heads.
.
There is no evidence of teeth marks ands no evidence of a gun either. This is a compelling break because of its size and scale.
.
The height rules out man without a ladder and most other animals in the forest. This is exactly what I look for. The oddity in the group.
.
The great part about this significant tree break is you can rule out most humans because of the height and location.
.
This one is located in a place people rarely stop and their was no evidence of human activity or tracks around it.
.
There are no teeth marks and no evidence of a gun shot either. Plus, it is located in an area we know they frequent.
.
Finally, the peel down behavior, which we have witnessed throughout Colorado.

This behavior is consistent with what other groups are doing. All this makes for a compelling break worth noting and is a great sign if your lucky enough to find one like this.

Some tips from the field. Moose eat allot of greens. We know this because we have a mother that frequents our North Park location. Moose do break off branches in some instances, but with two distinctions. They leave teeth marks and allot of Scat. It is easy to tell the difference.

Finally, Elk eat allot of bark in the winter on Aspens, but is easy to distinguish there teeth marks as well. It is often like two to 4 grooves in the bark area of the trunk. Neither is ever at 8 feet in my experience. This should help.

Thanks, Mike-SIR

My son Trenton, my daughter Ashleigh, and her boyfriend Stephen and I went out to our Central Colorado location on Saturday 08/18/2012. We found the massive collection of tree breaks in a new area yet unexplored by us.

It is over 30 breaks of all shapes and sizes in an area of less than 100 yards. Many are torn completely off. This collection of Aspens only has most of their leaves still in tact indicating to me they have not been eaten.

Central Colorado Signs Of Bigfoot Tree Breaks I think it is a message of some sort to other Sasquatches that may be moving through the area as a result of a huge fire, but I am not quite sure yet what it means.Single tree breaks seem to create a boundary line for about a mile as well heading south of this cluster.It is in an area near a burn area earlier this year in the front range of Colorado.The Sasquatches have been quite agitated this year as a result of the fires, but they adapt quickly and use the animal displacement to their advantage.Once I figure out what this means exactly and what they want I will let you know. It is a mystery, but an interesting one none the less.We will figure it out with time, they want us to at this location.

This group is extremely intelligent and friendly and they like us.

These tree break pictures are from our North Park Colorado research area in July, 2011

We received a report this year from three fisherman in North Park, who were non believers in Sasquatch.
.
They reported rock throwing, rock knocking and tree breaking in the day at a remote lake in the North Park area accessible by 4 wheel drive only.
.
This baffled them and they were looking for answers when the found our website and gave us a call.
.
They wanted me to investigate this place and we met on a 4 day excursion in July of this year, and it did not disappoint I assure you.
.
We experienced tree breaking in the day around us just out of sight and many other things.
.
One daytime walk in the rain and mist, I came upon a very foul smell much like a skunk only sweeter, which is a sign to me of their presence in my mind near one of the small lakes that makes up this pristine area.
.
A tree break ensued, which to me means I am getting to close for their comfort, so I backed off and it ceased.
.
We experienced eye shine on this trip as well.
.
Many a mind was changed forever on this trip as is often the case when you are lucky to find a spot as remarkable as this one was this summer.
.
The first picture shows the North Park Colorado lake from our campsite.
.
We were only one in the area on this trip. There were no other campers. What a grand place indeed.
.
The second picture shows you that it was a misty, rainy day in North Park as we looked for signs and evidence.
.
A perfect day as often times bad weather will illicit day time activity, which was the case.
.
The third picture shows tree breaks, which mark territories between Sasquatches and are used to frighten intruders is our view on this behavior.
.
This one was on a game trail on the NE side of the small lake they seem to use as their home base in this area.
.
The fourth picture shows tree breaks on south east side of the lake.
.
Note one is across the trail to the second lake they inhabit, which basically means keep out.
.
Unfortunately for them, I am not a very good listener.
.
The fourth picture is of a fresh break that occurred at 02:30 pm just west of my tent in the day time as I sat in my lawn chair having a sandwich.
.
It was a very loud crack all 5 of us heard at this excurion.
.
I ran as I fast as I could to try and catch a glimpse of the offending culprit, but found only scuff marks in the hard soil and a broken tree.
.
It is my opinion they were voicing their displeasure with me having found their location and camping so close to them.
.
The final picture shows a close-up of the freshly broken tree.

These tree break pictures were take by Robin and Jon on 03/02/13
Colorado Bigfoot Tree Break 01
Early morning on March 2, 2013, Robin and Jon was out researching.
.
It had snowed 18-20 inches a few days before.
Colorado Bigfoot Tree Break 02
Robin spotted a tree break back behind an aspen grove.
.
They ventured up into the area and found a double tree break.
.
It was pushed apart and down to make a fence posting pattern.
Colorado Bigfoot Tree Break 03
The first picture shows Jon standing behind the tree break.
.
The second picture shows it was a recent break.
Colorado Bigfoot Tree Break 04
In the third picture Jon is showing where it was pushed apart.
.
The fourth pictures shows the tree break spanning the ravine.

These tree snap pictures are from a new research area in Colorado
Bigfoot Picture Of Aspen Break
We’ve been researching a new area, and during this June 23, 2011 outing, we founds hundreds of these tree breaks in a 5 square mile radius.
.
These are unique from antler rubs.
Bigfoot Picture Of Close Break 1
The tree are broken with no horn scrapes or teeth marks on the bark.
.
There are teeth marks on the leaves only.
.
We’ve seen breaks from Moose in North Park, Colorado, but they are always accompanied by scat and teeth marks in abundance.
Bigfoot Picture Of Double Aspen Break
Plus, we received a report from a hunter in Northern Colorado, who said that Sasquatch had been eating Aspen leaves, which supports our contention in this behavior.
Bigfoot Fresh Tree Break
Michael has gathered this this type of information during 17 years of studying the Rampart Range area.
.
He uses this information to hone in on a group of Bigfoot.
.
Recently, using tree breaks, he got our group within a 1/4 mile of a groups home base.

.
This tree snap was located down in a deep and remote ravine near Pikes Peak.
Sasquatch Bigfoot Sentinal Tree
The 2 foot diameter Pine was out in the open with no other trees near to it. It was broken at about the 5 1/2 foot mark and the top was thrown nearby.
.
We’ve coined the phrase “Sentinel Tree”, which are used for marking borders and hunting territories amongst Sasquatch.
.
Others like it can be found in all our Bigfoot research areas.
.

.
These are tree breaks on a tall man trail near our NW Colorado campsite.
Bigfoot Tree Breaks - Sasquatch Research in Colorado
This trail mirrors a remote road that the game animals use to traverse the dark woods on either side of the road.
.
They are clearly way over my 6 ft tall head.
.
Most of the evidence in this area is in the 8-9 foot range well outside the range of a normal human reach.
.
We believe that they eat Aspen leaves and break the Aspens as a result. The broken Pine trees are territorial markers.
.

.
The next two images show trees that were pushed down into a cross formation.
Sasquatch Aspen Cross Formation
Sasquatch Aspen Push
This was the first time that I took our previous cofounder to my secluded location of 17 years.
.
It was a mostly foggy overcast day in May of 2009.
.
The culprit had dropped bows of Pines as it fled the scene, which may be a sign of nesting behavior, but this is pure speculation.
.
CO Sasquatch Tree Cross Formation
This “X” formation jammed in between two Aspen trees overlooks the ravine where they hunt Elk.
.
There is no grove of trees close by that could have caused this situation naturally.
.
It is a sign this ravine is taken meant for other Sasquatches that wonder in this area to avoid this territory.
.

.
This tree twist was found in Central Colorado
Bigfoot Tree Twist WT
This tree break was one of five in a small grove of Aspen trees.
.
No teeth marks or horn damage is evident, but they were pulled down like a banana peel
.
We can emulate this with our hands, but some of the trees were too big.
.
Please note that some of the leaves had been chewed on.
.
We have received a report from a bow-hunter in Northern Colorado, who watched Sasquatch eating Aspen leaves for 20 minutes.
.

.
These Aspen trees were pushed down onto one of our paths
Bigfoot Picture Of Aspen Scratches
We had explored this area a week before and felt at the time like we were being followed.
.
When we returned, these Aspen tree had been pushed down one of the paths, and they had deep, wide nail marks moving down the tree.
.
Whatever pushed these over seemed to have a purpose and tremendous strength.
.
Animals are territorial and it may have been caused by some Sasquatch sending a message to stay out of its territory.
.

.
Here’s another example of what we call a “Sentinel Tree”
Bigfoot Picture Of Devils Kitch Tree Snap
On 7-24-2010, we found this young pine was broke down at about the 5′ mark in a remote valley with no other trees fallen next to it.
.
It is in the open in the center of the ravine for all to see, which is generally the case.
.
No rubs were present, indicating deer or elk activity.
.
The location was down in a remote drainage near Rampart Range, west of Colorado Springs.
.

.
Jeff Yelek our northern researcher discovered these tree breaks in his research area of a small Aspen tree break. These can be found in and around all of our research areas.

Another perfect day for Sasquatch investigating in Colorado.

This is me standing by a sentinel tree that we found relatively freshly broken in May 2009 in my original area.
.
It is way down in the ravine.
.
The weather was cold and rainy. We were basically in the fog and clouds that day.
.
The fog masked our scent and we happened upon what I speculate is a female we believe nest building.
.
She ran ahead of us and we never saw her, but we found her 17″ prints and the nest branches she dropped as she made her escape down hill from us with her 44″ strides.
.
I got really close this day to seeing a female in the same area I saw my 8 foot male long ago.
.
Nest building means to me she might be pregnant based on my experiences with this from our NW Colorado site.
.
We went back the next week and found 6 Aspens were broken down in our path in X formations, which we took as a warning.
.
These photos with the claw marks are presented in our website under the tree breaks section showing the crossed Aspens for reference.
.
Pine branch freshly broken and dropped in her footpath on the ground as we chased suspected female Sasquatch down a steep incline in fog in May of 2009.
.
This May day in 2009 taught me a lot.
.
The pieces of the puzzle started making sense.
.
You could correlate experiences from this day with experiences I had in the past at other locations and things started making sense, such as the purpose of nest building, time of year for births, babies, etc.

This is a tree break and rub caused by a Bull Elk.

Bigfoot Research Bulk Elk Tree Breaks 3

I want you to see the difference.
.
The Bull will generally rub the tree until it is destroyed.
.
They do this to remove the velvet from their horns during the rut.
.
This small pine was completely destroyed.
.
Pieces of it could be found all around the base.
.
Photo 1 shows the base with pieces of the pine on the ground removed from the trunk.
.
Photo 2 shows how shredded the small trunk can get.
.
In Photo 3 I purposely stood it up for a comparison photo for reference.
.
I put this on the website to show you how easy it is to tell the difference from Elk damages and Sasquatch caused tree breaks.
.
A Mule deer often gets between a group of trees and shreds multiple trees at one time.

tree-break-exampleThis photo is for reference only. It is to help you understand the differences in damages to trees in the forest.

This is Mule deer damages to a small sapling Aspen tree. Please note the size of the tree, which is very small and it is broken and not peeled down.

Also, notice the bark and tree itself has been eaten down quite a bit. It is easy to tell deer, elk and moose damage to trees from Sasquatch damages.

This is an example of what is not Sasquatch related.

Also, this area all the trees in the immediate area had their bark eaten. This included trees big and small. The bigger trees none of which were broken only this one tiny one.


Colorado Bigfoot Tree Breaks 01

Colorado Bigfoot Tree Breaks 02

This impressive tree break was found recently in NW Colorado by Michael Johnson while scouting with David Ottke.
.
Dave is in the picture for scale. Dave is 6’4″ tall.
.
It borders the eastern edge of one of two groups that border each other in this area.
.
They have clearly marked their territory.
.
Please notice no Aspens are broken at all.
.
They had light snow packs in this area this year as well.
.
I have had tree breaks like this happen in my midst in real time. They always look like this.
.
They are used for three purposes. As a border for other Sasquatches, to scare humans away in some instances, and as a show of strength to other Sasquatches is how we perceive them at this time.
.
.

This tree break is similar to others we have found. It is clearly displayed on a ridge as is often the case. This was found
in north central Colorado by Dave Ottke and Michael Johnson. No other pines are broken in the area.

Colorado Bigfoot Tree Breaks 03

The pictures show you the shear strength its takes to achieve this type of damages.
.
It is a marker to other Sasquatches this area is occupied.
.
I have seen this exact same type of break occur in real time with our northern group when we first found them as a display of strength is my thought.
.
It makes quite a sound and is quite intimidating.
.
I ran toward the sound as I heard it, but was to slow to see the culprit that escaped in a deep ravine.
.
Ironically, it has been closed by the Forest Service from use by the public, which is often the case.

why would bigfoot need to break tree’s? DOes he want us to really find him or is he leaving evidence for danger if you go near?

Thanks for posting. Theres hundreds of those “squatch breaks” in my area. Yea some obviously are natural but for the most part u can distinguish between the 2. Im on the east coast so our terrain is a bit diffrent but i believe all squatches will do tree snaps. Why im still not sure i believe it may be for territorial markers but that is only speculation. You have been blessed to see one i have had them very close but just out of eyesight. Anyways thanks again for posting.

first off i am a believer …had the good fortune to observe one in the middle of the road for over 30 seconds as a young man and another while hunting at close range when in my thirties. this summer we had activety around our summer trailer. a rock off the roof at about 10pm, could hear something leaning on my car making the metal pop, strange human like whistles and screen torn into pieces and placed around the car in a semi circle. then on day pulling in i believe i caught a glimpse of one running off through a clearing in the bush. decided to investigate the forest behind my trailer and found all kinds of trees broken off, not cut. i had walked this route before to a spring back in the forest and had easy going. now i found the trees were arranged in a fashion that caused my to zig and zag and every time i took a new route there was another obsticle forcing me to go another way again. after ten minutes i gave up. my theory is that knockdowns may be arranged to allow for easy escape and or herd game in a certain direction. any thoughts out there.

I have come across some of what I consider ‘Sasquatch trail sign’ here in my area of Washington state. I have started looking at things a little differently as far as fallen and bent trees are concerned. Any bent or arched trees I see, I look to see if it has been pinned under something to keep it arched. I have found them with their tops wedged under logs and woven into trail side shrubs. I keep and eye out for large trees that have been uprooted and have been moved. (when a tree is uprooted the root ball usually comes up with it leaving a hole in the ground, if there is no hole where the tree is laying I suspect it of being moved.) I have started checking these “moved” trees for hair samples and was very successful on one tree that was covered in moss. I found some interesting very long hairs embedded in the moss barely detectable and hard to see. I keep and eye out for crossed logs. Small dead trees wedged into the Y of standing trees. There is one common trail near Mt St. Helens that has these X’s at both ends of it. This trail is probably walked daily by the public and they don’t even know what has happened around them. This is an interesting subject but you do need to know what happens naturally with tree falls, past logging, and natural tree arching.
I think the arched and pinned trees are trail signs that point the way of travel. I think the moving of large trees maybe a show of strength as part of a mating ritual to impress a potential female. The X’s probably mean do not enter.
There is one other type of “sign” I found. Tree sculpting. The bending of living trees into Teepee or pyramid type shapes I have a poor video of this sculpting on my blog. Look for “the house that Bigfoot built” if you would like to see it.
Lastly, beware nature can fool you. All sorts of funny things happen in the forest and have nothing to do with any mythical beasties
