An extraordinary number have a narrow dead or rotten fireburned line on one side of trunk for 5 or 10 feet which the trees are about covering over at this time. What a scourge to California is fire, especially the fall fires. They not only destroy so much but spoil so much. They spoil our autumnal atmosphere, filling our valleys with smoke and haze. I have seen the valleys in the fall fill with smoke so that one could not see more than half a mile.  -Redwood 463 years = Diam. 5 feet, 11 1/8 inches.
