Fire Scar

Giant Sequoias need fire to propagate their seeds and to clear the forest floor from other trees competing for the same sun rays. Extremely fire resistant, Giant Sequoia bark is layered and has pockets of air inside. The trunks are-- surprisingly-- extremely soft. While fires scar the tees, the strongest are still able to live long lives, hundreds and even thousands of years in some instances. These trees are so amazing. Fires burn. Scars heal. And life goes on. I love these trees!
