    Giant Coast Redwoods ~ a Must-See ~ 2015

    Giant Coast Redwoods ~ a Must-See ~ 2015

    Had a chance to see the new deck built around Stout Tree. Certain factors within the grove connote the deck may be wasted money that could have been used to improve matters for a half dozen other trees. I posted feedback in a video: VIDEO LINK > https://youtu.be/DAObORSAotA

    Vid's & Pic's from the Redwoods

    Video info says 170 to 175 feet ... so about 10 feet taller than the world's tallest maple tree. Makes for a fun comparison.

    Giant Coast Redwoods ~ a Must-See ~ 2015

    I'm reading a book Hidden Life of Trees and the author describes remnants of a beech stump being kept alive for hundreds of years, fed via the root connections - there are no leaves on the stump so it must be fed by the other trees. Interesting to see a similar situation here. Odds are many of us have been near these. I learned by experience in my twenties on my mother's property. She surrounded her upper acre with Douglas fir, and we thinned out a few cutting the stumps to an inch or two. In the next ten to twenty years, we watched them start growing over with tissue. I saw Douglas fir do the same near a parking above Redwood National Park. It's attached. The stumps that lived at my mother's were father apart. I've seen several while doing l work at other properties.

    The "Nitro Express" crucifies the description that coast redwoods taper but giant sequoia do not. In reality, both species do and don't. This is a coast redwood.

    One of the more interesting stumps in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. The small trunks should be from the root system and the small little things in front are also living. So the stump may be mostly dead, but not completely as part regenerates life.

    It rarely gets warm in the redwoods, but in case it does, the outfits can be limitless.

    The forks of the Smith River were very nice this weekend, too.

    It was raining on and off the other day in the redwoods. Did some walking on the old road in Jedediah Smith park.

    "They Live !!" ... in the coast redwood forest ...
  13. It's out of my path, but I'd take a look otherwise. It's surprising how much size that entire genus can grow in century or less. Or more.

    Smaller denizens of the redwood forest. Maidenhair ferns. I imagine that UK or part of Europe would have some of these too. There are quite a few species in the genus.

    Dappled light in Redwood National Park. Same tree posted a few weeks ago, that was photographed a hour after this photo when the full side became entirely shaded.
