Description

Here is another view from atop the largest (not tallest) tree in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. This is the world's tallest forest. About a dozen of the trees visible in this panorama are over 360 feet tall. Can you find the two trees standing side by side with solar-powered sensor arrays? These are the only known live-topped redwoods over 360 feet tall whose crowns touch.

    "Dude" - you get around the web !! Happened to stumble upon these images tonight, reading about redwoods and forests. I had not even heard of Gigapan before. Per your photo caption question - yes, with the enlarger tool, the monitoring equipment shows, including what looks like a wind gauge. There are two more obvious clusters of equipment - is that two trees, or one tree with two leaders? Because another tree to the left, appears to have an antennae. Hard to tell if it's an antennae, or a dead top, but it looks skinny. Cheers, Mario Vaden The Oregon Arborist
