This is the general area where this tree is located, but for obvious reasons it's not precise.
I have doubts that that is the largest Redwood in Oregon. Doesn't look much over 8' DBH. The largest one about 20 years ago was 27' dia at the widest part. This entry needs to be verified.
Hell, There's a bigger one next to Deady Hall on the University of Oregon Campus...Really.
This is a great picture brideys. For decades when I was a kid I thought that the redwoods stopped at the Calif border because I couldn't see any from 101 when we took trips up to the lily farms around Harbor and the Prehistoric Gardens. But last year I exchanged comments with 'jeffmeyers1' and 'Michael Hatton' and found out otherwise.
Somehow I missed your picture which has been in G-E a long time. You started uploading in the early days of Panoramio.
You can see my pix in G-E of both kinds of redwoods from Seattle to Ewell, Surrey. Also pix of the southernmost naturally occurring coast redwoods a few miles north of Ragged Point in Big Sur.
I hiked the Loeb Park Redwood Nature Trail last weekend and was glad to see all the big trees, which are probably the northernmost Coast Redwoods. But it is sad to see the clear cut sections both north and south of the redwood grove.
