This Fell


The giant sequoia, which was carved into a living tunnel over a century ago, has fallen

 

Pioneer Cabin Tree

A victim of a massive California storm.  And, whoever thought it was a good idea to carve a hole through the base.

    I read previous reports on this tree that said it was “barely alive” and was markedly leaning to one side already. It’s roots were said to only be 2 to 4 feet deep, which seems pretty incredible considering the size of the tree.

    I think I see the problem. It’s a bit difficult to notice but there seems to be a bit of a hole at the base which would have affected it’s overall stability in one plane because of a partial disconnect of the root system.
