Looking into the heights!
This is the view of the tree when you look up the trunk towards the top. "Magnificent" hardly describes the sense of grandeur you feel when standing beside one of these trees.
This particular specimen is less than 100 feet tall, so even though it is of flowering size, it is not near the full size that this tree is capable of reaching.
The picture below shows how the bark changes from the trunk to the roots. As you can see, the roots do not exhibit the colorful quality that the trunk does.
