📷 taken in the middle of a giant redwood fairy ring 🌲 A fairy ring is a common name for a group of redwood trees growing in a circle; usually around the stump of a logged old-growth tree. After being cut down, a new generation of trees sprout from the roots of the fallen redwood, often creating a near-perfect circle or ring. It’s one of the ways redwoods regenerate, giving them the tremendous advantage of already having a full root system compared to species that reproduce through seed. And as well as that, it feels magical to be stood in the middle of them ✨ These trees can grow up to 3K years old — these ones were babies at just 1000. And so endeth today’s natural history lesson 😆😉 Happy Saturday folks - what are you up to? . . . . . . #tree #trees #nature #naturelovers #tree_captures #tree_brilliance #ig_shotz_trees #splendid_woodlands #bns_trees #nature_worldwide_trees #divine_forest #tentree #treemagic #instagram #inthewoods #inthewild #thestoryteller #californiaadventure #quietplace #sequoianationalpark #fairyring #magicspring #springmagic #myeverydaymagic #hellostoryteller #visualarchitects #simplethingsmadebeautiful #simplenaturefinds #alittlebeautyeveryday
Joskus oikein potuttaa 🙃 Kun tultiin Sequoian k-puiston korkealle vuorelle, maassa oli lunta, satoi vettä ja oli sikakylmä. 🥶Emme kävelleet komeassa Giant Forestissa, emme ihastelleet komeita puita siellä... 😫 Kerkesin napata sateessa juostessa vain pari hassua kuvaa General Shermanista 😫 Pitää toivoa että joskus myöhemmin tulisi mahdollisuus taas tulla käymään tässä upeassa kansallispuistossa #oravalomalla #californication #californiaroadtrip #sequoianationalpark
"Even if fires penetrate the bark on occasion, it doesn't often kill the tree. Mature sequoias live quite well despite large fire scars." Where do I begin? I've wanted to touch one of these beauties my whole life, and today, I got my wish. The strength in this one tree made me literally tear up. If these giants can withstand flames, we can live through the fire, too. . . . . #sequoianationalpark #sequoia #cali #california #travel
