I've been learning about the giant sequoia trees in California -the giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) and the coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens).
I'm really interested in these kinds of trees because they're so big and I feel connected to them.
I found this website of the first sequoia trees that were found and cut by Europeans
This tree was cut down in 1853 and they used the trunk for a dancefloor.
It makes me sad that they had to cut down these beautiful trees.
I'm glad that they don't cut the sequoias down much any more.
Here's a picture of me as a baby with my mum at the sequoia trees in California.
