From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
Got to see the 130 foot tall twin dawn redwoods at the college of william and mary recently. I asked the girl at the information desk who found a photo on the computer. The silouette was obvious on the horizon, she told me where it was taken from, and the rest is history. Magnificent trees
