Waldbrand bedroht die größten Bäume der Welt

By Jordi Bou

July 11, 2022 - Ein sich weiter ausbreitender Waldbrand gefährdet das größte Vorkommen der Welt von Riesen-Mammutbäumen im Yosemite National Park.

The Washburn Fire, which started on 7 July, threatens at least 500 giant sequoias in the Mariposa Grove, including the famed Grizzly Giant which is thought to be around 3,000 years old.

Coming at the height of the summer tourist season, evacuations displaced around 1,600 people, according to the National Park Service.

Giant sequoias, world’s biggest trees by mass, can grow to over 80 metres tall.
They are among oldest living organisms on earth, living to over 3,000 years
