The coast redwood below is one of the New Discoveries, found mid-summer 2014, in Redwood National and State Parks. It became a new diameter champion until 2015. In the photo, I am standing mid-trunk and not behind it. This was one of my last photos taken with a Tokina 11-16mm ultra wide angle lens.
Déjà vu was measured several times. The average diameter / dbh is 27.4 feet
Plant growth around this redwood is facinating. There are two species of huckleberry, 3 species of fern, salal and young redwood saplings.
