Nathan Beagle, Public Works Supervisor, accepts delivery of ten redwood saplings for the city of Mill Creek on March 14, 2017.

Redwood saplings being planted in Mill Creek’s Heron Park on March 23, 2017.

The first of ten trees planted is a clone of the Fieldbrook stump, which had a diameter of 32 feet.

The Fieldbrook tree was cut down in 1890, but if it were alive today, it would likely be over 400 feet tall and over 3500 years old. It would be the largest tree by height and volume on the planet.
