Giant tree

This redwood tree was cut down in the national park Sequoia, in 1892. Surprisingly smooth cut for such a ginormous tree.

Or, it could be that those 3 are dwarves. The ‘saw’ that dwarf has looks more like a hacksaw blade.

At least now redwoods are protected.

would it hurt you to write something about it? story is probably as much interesting as this picture. actually most of these pictures are boring without a story.

Good God – how long did it take to cut that thing down with a handsaw? You could bore out the middle and turn the thing into a house!!

Looks like they didn’t mess around, even with their ladders in those days. If you go to get an orchard or step ladder now, the rungs are about every foot. In that image, the man on the ground is certainly a 6 foot man, if not a few inches taller. The rungs are more like every 16″ apart, so each step would take them that much higher than what some of us use.
