Getting the young redwood sapling, a clone of the Fieldbrook stump, snugged into its new home in Pfingst Animal Acres Park in Lake Forest Park.
Newly planted on April 22, 2017, this redwood sapling has the same genetic make-up as the Fieldbrook stump, which had a diameter of 32 feet and a circumference of 109 feet. See next photo.
The Fieldbrook tree was cut down in 1890. If it were alive today, it would likely be over 400 feet tall and over 3500 years old and be the largest tree by height and volume on the planet.
