The Giant Einstein Tree of Knowledge! Go With the Helical Flow!

“Ja! Es gibt etwas an diesem Baum, das mich fasziniert!”

Yes! There’s something about this tree that fascinates me!

What could it be: E = m•tree•2 … the infamous Theory of Rela-tree-vity!# 🤮 …… 😩

The giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) is the world’s most massive tree, and arguably the largest living organism on Earth. It is neither the tallest extant species of tree (that distinction belongs to the coast redwood), nor is it the widest (that distinction belongs to the Montezuma cypresses), nor is it the longest-lived (that distinction belongs to the Great Basin bristlecone pine). However, with a height of 87 meters (286 ft) or more, a circumference of 34 meters (113 ft) or more, an estimated bole volume of up to 1,490 cubic meters (52,500 cu ft), and an estimated life span of 1800-2700 years, the giant sequoia is among the tallest, widest and longest-lived of all organisms on Earth.

Yes! This tree is not the tallest tree; but it definitely is the smartest!

Note: Sequoia is the only word that contains all of the vowels.

#Note. Einstein and The Theory of Meandering Streams:

Einstein was one of the first to explain how helical flow develops in a meandering river, and that because the higher-velocity portions of the stream will be driven to the outside (concave) portion of the river bend, erosion will be greater there. … Hence, the wave-form of the river will migrate in a down-current direction.

    • Redwood is as green as it gets:

      Reduces Carbon Emissions:

      Something to consider is that wood removes carbon from the air and stores it in wood fibers, even after the wood is made into lumber. Redwood is very efficient at keeping carbon out of the air – up to a half ton of carbon can be stored in one Redwood deck.

      What’s more, by using sustainable forestry practices Redwood’s carbon storage can be maximized. Mature trees aren’t able to take in as much carbon as the faster growing younger ones. So when a mature tree is replaced by a sapling, the carbon emission reduction is improved.

      Redwood forestry has come a long way in recent years to ensure the health of the forest remains intact and that lumber is produced in the most responsible way possible. When it comes to deck building, Redwood is about as green as it gets.
