Giant sequoia tree, Sequoiadendron giganteum



The Tennessee Tree shows resilience to fire damage, continuing to thrive in spite of deep fire scars. The living tissue or cambium layer of a sequoia lies just under its bark. As long as some of this thin, living tissue connects the leaves above with the roots below, the tree will continue to live. If undisturbed by people, or more fire, this living layer will eventually heal the fire scars seen on this tree. Grant Grove.
