Mammoetbomen in de Benelux [Sequoia's in Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxemburg] by Tim Bekaert http://users.telenet.be/sequoiadendron/ ... nelux.html Aangezien de mammoetboom (Sequoiadendron) pas in het midden van de 19e eeuw werd ontdekt, zijn de bomen bij ons nog niet oud genoeg om de afmetingen te evenaren die deze bomen halen in hun natuurlijk verspreidingsgebied. Toch zijn de grootste exemplaren in België, Nederland en Luxemburg al erg indrukwekkend. Language: Dutch. Country: Belgium, Luxemburg, and Netherlands. Accessed: January 15, 2009.

The tree is designated a national monument of Belgium.According to a long-held local legend, Julius Caesar stopped at this tree during his military campaign in the area en route to Britannia in 55 BC, tied his horse to it, and took a nap in the shadow of its foliage.
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
