Climbing Redwoods

Many people like to use redwoods as bonsai.  We thought they might appreciate the perspective this video offers on ecological diversity and potential design considerations.  From the “trunks springing from trunks springing from trunks” to the “thickets of huckleberry” that grow in the canopy, to the limbs that fuse between trunks.  These are all characteristics that you can potentially integrate when working on the design for your redwoods.  Others may find aspects interesting, though not related to bonsai, such as an organism found in the oceans that lives in the canopy or species of insects that are thought to only exist on a single tree.
