Giant sequoias require fire to reproduce. The fire cycle of 5 to 15 years opens the hard seeds of the pine cone while clearing out areas for seedlings to grow. Juvenile sequois grow tall quickly and in close knit groves. Mature trees like the one in this image push out rivals, shed their top and begin to grow in width after about 1,000 years of survival. This fire scar shows both how resistant to fire these trees are and the thickness of the soft, fiberous bark is. The bark at the ground is nearly 2 feet thick. Over time, the bark will surround this fire scar. The green moss-like plant growing on the tree are lichen related to lichen growing on nearby rocks. Giant sequoias can live for over 3,000 years, outlasting all of their mixed conifer forest neighbors. What is it about giant sequoias that allows them to persist through millennia? Surprisingly, a major factor in in the longevity of giant sequoias is a chemical called tannin. The tannin, present in high concentrations in sequoia b...
