Cool! That cypress is insane.
I agree. That cypress and that super old bristlecone pine are insane--sad that there was an older tree cut down in the 60's...

I have seen that giant Montezuma cypress -- El Tule -- in person. It is unbelievable! Thanks for sharing this, Andrew. I have to wonder, though, why there weren't any redwoods or sequoias in the list.
Yeah, there were a few questionable trees on the list--a couple, it seems, are there just for the significance linked to the tree. If you take away the events that have nothing to do with the tree itself, they don't seem impressive. Redwoods need no story to go with them and General Sherman should have definitely made the list IMO.

The Prometheus story starts just after the 15:00 mark.

"In his house at Omaha, dread Funkthulhu plants palm trees."
