That's very sad - I have to question why they had to carve a huge hole in it though.

The article said the hole was chopped in there in 1880. Somewhat different attitude to the environment than we have now.

It already had hole through it, that's probably why. They never weakened it structurally. I added it to my drive through coast redwood page as an update even though it's Sequoiadendron.

But iconic tree opportunities are appearing faster than disappearing.

I went there as a very small child and have no memory of it, but there are photos of us standing in it and near it. I have the pics somewhere. Maybe I'll dig them out and scan them. My mother (single mom) took us all over California, top-to-bottom when we were kids to show us how beautiful the state was. We went on many road trips each year. Lots of adventures.
