A Relic Of Lumbering Days In The Sequoias
Why are you reporting this puzzle?
This area is a part of Mountain Home State Forest above Porterville, California. This is an extremely popular area for local people. This is a stump of a Giant Sequoia tree that was felled for its lumber circa 1900. The most intense era of logging was a twenty year period from 1885 until shortly after 1900. Giant Sequoias continued to be destroyed until the land was purchased by the state in 1945. Logging continues in the area but the Sequoias are off limits to loggers.
