Sequoiadendron giganteum


On March 22, 1862, the day of his son Emil's birth, Peter Britt planted this giant sequoia by his home. Britt was a pioneer photographer, skilled horticulturist, and leader in Southern Oregon's lucrative fruit industry. From its vantage point, this majestic tree has witnessed the unfolding of Jacksonville's rich history — the gold rush prosperity of the mid 1800s, the decline at the turn of the century and the current restoration and revitalization.
