Hello from Cambridge

Greetings, I am Jake Mason from Cambridge, England. My interest in trees started a few months ago when I stumbled across information about the redwood colossuses. Since then I have managed to visit my area of choice once and locate Hyperion. My current top interest is in how trees can grow so tall without water supply failing, and simply WHAT they are, especially trees including all coast redwoods, all giant sequoias, all douglas firs, all giant mountain-ashes and some notable either other species or cut-down individuals including the Ferguson tree, the Nooksack giant, "Patriarch" bristlecone pine. Trees are a wonderful world, a world within their own. Nowadays, I am hoping to go down there more often so I can locate trees such as Helios. There is an amusing fact that I smashed my camera to pieces en route to Hyperion, 3 days before leaving. I am grateful for being part of this wonderful organisation. Good luck!
