"Iconic Sequoia 'Tunnel Tree' Brought Down By California Storm."
That tree was over 1,000 years old. The tunnel was also old. Not that old, but old. It was a 19th century idea to carve tunnels in sequoias. There was a more famous one, the Wawona Tree in Yosemite National Park. Nature lodged her objection to that one 1969 when she sent a storm to crush human hubris.
Suddenly, there are no tunnel sequoias left. But there are some coastal redwoods — like this one, used — exploited humiliatingly — in a Geico ad.
