"fumble then hold to split"
April 4 - 10, 2021

The summer of 2020 was one of unimaginable wildfires. “California’s epic wildfires took deadly aim at the state’s most beloved trees. In a relative instant, countless ancient redwoods, hundreds of giant sequoias and more than one million Joshua trees perished. The blackened wreckage sends a clear message, These trees are in the fight of their lives”. (John Branch the NY Times)
