    RE: 2011 Redwood Photo Contest STRL - Vote

    If anybody hears of tree related photo contests in 2012, drop a note here.

    Update ...

    I found out late last year, that a man Atkins, who also explores with us, found another Western Hemlock almost as tall, in the same park. Just a foot shorter.

    And to a very limited few people too.

    The Forest Service botanist was informed too, because they are hoping for continued preservation.
