I love the story of the Dawn Redwood. It always gives me faith that despite all technology and science, the mystery of this world will continue to amaze us forever. Although the Dawn Redwood has been growing on this planet for over 50 million years, it was not until relatively recently that botanists and scientists even became aware that it existed as a species, and even then, they believed that it was extinct.

Dawn redwoods are being planted all over the place. One guy is trying to re-establish it in a the Sauratwown Mtns. in North Carolina.

I despise the fact that botanists get credited for "discovering" a tree known for centuries, if not millenia- by native peoples.

Felt like bumping this one because the video is too enjoyable to let slide into the shadows altogether.
