About the Old-Growth Cone Ornament
The enormous and ancient Giant Sequoia trees of the Sierras are true wonders of the natural world. Sequoiadendron giganteum are our planet's most massive living things, and they can grow for more than three thousand years — towering to heights of nearly 300 feet, with gigantic trunks up to 40-feet across, thickly clad in deeply-furrowed, red-brown bark. Giant Sequoias have an extremely limited native range. They are found only on the western slopes of Central California's Sierra-Nevada Mountain range, and there are only 80 (or so) indigenous groves in existence.
Understandably, today most of the world's precious old growth Giant Sequoia groves are protected ins tate and national parks — like Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon — where it is illegal to forage or disturb the wilderness in any way. Hence, it's a rarity to come across true old growth Giant Sequoia cones except in the California parks beneath these towering titans of antiquity.
Now, you can legally gift or add one (or more!) of these amazing old growth Giant Sequoia cones to your collection of holiday decorations!
The cones used to make these remarkable handcrafted ornaments were legally collected from an ancient stand of Giant Sequoias on private forestland. Each cone ornament is a unique creation of nature which began life high up in a massive old growth Giant Sequoia tree — a tree that has stood in the California mountains as a sentinel of time for more than a thousand years and is still going strong. Not only an attractive addition to your holiday trim, these rare Old Growth Giant Sequoia Cone Ornaments embody a message of life and regeneration that reaches across the ages to touch us with meaning and inspiration.
Each Old Growth Giant Sequoia Cone Ornament comes individually gift-boxed with a Certificate of Origination documenting its authenticity and singularity. Our Old Growth Giant Sequoia Cone Ornaments are absolutely "the real thing," and no two are alike. They are about the size of a golf ball. To realize what this simple ornament really is — that it once contained the regenerative power of the most massive living organism on Earth — is to be struck with awe.
Hold it in your hand and marvel! Give it as a meaningful gift! Hang it on your Christmas Tree! But, whatever you do, don't miss this chance to add some of nature's most profound handiwork to your own holiday tradition!
