  •  might want to look into DAWN redwood to see (0+ / 0-)

    if it would fit conditions. Metasequoia, sort of a cousin of the Northern California classic redwoods. They're beautiful, only discovered between the World Wars, GROW 2 FEET A YEAR! They're quite happy in England, and inland Oregon, if that helps... I have 3 in my immediate suburban neighborhood, but U of Oregon is one of the places that "discovered" the fossil form AND the surviving grove in China! (The first picture on the Wiki page above is of a specimen growing on the U of OR campus!)

    "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...

    •  It didn't even make my impressive trees list (0+ / 0-)

      ... because its records weren't that impressive - for example, the tallest I found was only 40m.  But then again, I think it's fair that these are all going to be young trees, so maybe I should reconsider.

      Já þýðir já. Nei þýðir nei. Hvað er svona erfitt við það?
