Additional Details:
Centuries ago a redwood tree grew to the remarkable age of two thousand years. In a storm it fell to earth. Some years later another redwood seedling took root in the moss and litter accumulated on the top of this fallen log. It grew many years and encompassed the fallen tree. When this new tree reached the age of twenty-five hundred years it was harvested. This long age was scientifically determined by counting the rings of yearly growth. But the remarkable thing is that while centuries have passed, while summers of fog and winters of rain have come and gone, while storms have raged and passed, and fires have burned and gone out, it has successfully resisted all these, as well as insect attack and decay-permitting fungi-while twenty-five centuries of history have been made, this redwood log has lain in this position, exposed to conditions most favorable to decay, and is still sound. The man in the foreground recently made the other portion of the fallen log into split shakes to be use din making a redwood lifetime roof.
