Posted May 01, 2019 03:00:48A giant sequolea tree fell on a residential subdivision in the Oregon forest this week, leaving a trail of blood and limbs.
Aerial images show the tree was about 1.6 feet (305 centimeters) tall, standing nearly 4 feet (120 centimeters) away from a fence and trees that are typically about 1 foot (25 centimeters) high.
The tree also had a thick, white bark.
The tree fell about 6 miles (10 kilometers) northeast of Bend, Oregon, near a subdivision called the Sequoia Ranch.
The Sequoias are the tallest trees in the state, measuring about 10 feet (3.5 meters) tall.
The Forest Service is investigating the cause of the fall.
The sequoias, native to southern California, are among the most iconic of the state’s forests.
They can grow to more than 30 feet (9 meters) and have been found in more than 300 places across the U.S.
