When a giant tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Of course, it does, but it can also cause an obstruction if it falls over a path or road. When that happens there are only 2 courses of action. Remove the tree (which takes a lot of work) or build a tunnel going through it…

Quite a few of these images you are about to see are located within the Sequoia National Park because when a giant Sequoia tree falls over or dies it is often easier to build a tunnel through them rather than cut them down.

The same park as before, only this time an older tree, an older image and an older vehicle!

I’m not sure what the difference is between a giant redwood and a Sequoia, but I presume it mostly about the colour. This is a single tree that has split due to a lightning strike which really shows just how delicate these giant trees are.

Cars back then were a little bit lower than today’s family jeep so I would imagine you can no longer do this.

We go back to a Sequoia for this one and on a drive tour thru tree. Shame there is no McDonald’s within the tree, now that would be cool.

When a Sequoia tree falls over a path it seems it’s far too much hassle to be cutting all of it down.

There is not much of a head clearance for this tree tunnel, barely a whisper between the top of the truck and the trunk.

While there isn’t much of a tree trunk left there is still a tunnel going through it.

Yet another walking path, and it still looks amazing. It must take ages to cut it through that thick trunk.

Some of the path tunnels through trees feature wooden walkways made from the trees themselves!
