Caption

The towering trunk of a Californian Redwood tree Sequoia sempervirens, the base of which has been hollowed to allow cars to drive through. As an evergreen conifer it is the world's tallest species of tree (up to 100 metres/325 feet high). This specimen named the "Chandelier Tree" is 315 feet high, with a diameter of 21 feet, and an age of up to 2400 years. Sequoia sempervirens is not however, the largest, most massive of all living species. This attribute is given to the giant Red- wood: a shorter species, but with a girth of up to 25 metres and age of 3000-4000 years. Sequoia are more likely to topple over before dying from old age. Photographed at Leggett in California, USA.
