Photo: Boston Public Library, Pioneer’s Cabin. On January 8, 2017 this iconic Sierra redwood fell to the ground. The tree was estimated to be more than 1,000 years old (and still alive) when it fell. This stereography made sometime between 1850-1880 by E. & H. T. Anthony & Co. shows the tree before it was tunneled through.
Of note in 2017 is the demise of an iconic Sierra redwood which fell to the ground after a massive rainstorm toppled the tree. The tree was estimated to be more than 1,000 years old and alive when it fell. The tree was well known for being so big it could accommodate a tunnel bored through in 1880 to allow the passage of cars. More info on our California Headlines
