a flight to the states would be well worth it just to get a chance to climb those big trees, i reckon its mostly scientists/arborists(real ones) that will get that oppertunity

Didn't it say a trip to Eugene, Oregon to climb a redwood or giant sequoia?


Are there any much over, say, 150 feet in that part of Oregon? We're talking planted trees here, maybe from early 1900s or something.


I don't get the impression that this a meet in Eugene, is like going into redwoods like Beranek climbs on private property in California.


The natural range for redwoods ends over 150 miles south of Eugene.


Oregon's champion Sequoiadendron is in the same county I live in:


Giant sequoia


They seem comparable to other big species of conifers that local arborists may have worked on here from time to time,
