Yosemite National Park, California 2008 -- OK -- here is the last named tree we'll show here. Can you guess what it's called? (Answer on next page). This tree's base has been hollowed out large enough for a car to drive through. The culprit is fire--the grove has suffered through 14 major fires since 450 AD. But fires (as we shall see) are friends of the Sequoia and no fire has ever killed a mature Sequoia -- so resistant is their bark.
