Keep up the great work!

Re: Patrick from NC

Hi Eli, I'm familiar with the book you mentioned, and your additional reference to it led me out to the local library this morning to pick up a copy.

Metasequoia on UNC Chapel Hill campus

Very nice metasequoia. There is one about half that size on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill. Here are 3 pics: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Q6RMJsq-DfY/Tnvx9n9juII/AAAAAAAAA80/hPR--JFIyFw/s512/IMG_0889.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-UotwQDDzPV4/Tnvx93sQrqI/AAAAAAAAA84/rok5bLJsoN4/s640/IMG...
