Title: National Geographic: Redwoods
Url: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/redwoods/redwoods
Publisher: National Geographic Society (U.S.)
Description: Astounding, beautiful, fantastical, and enormous, these are all apt descriptions of the redwoods of the Pacific coast. National Geographic's website offers a multimedia presentation about these majestic trees which includes the cover story, "The Super Trees", from their October 2009 magazine, and details under "Tune In", on when to watch the corresponding broadcast "Explorer: Climbing Redwood Giants". In addition to an online photo "Jigsaw Puzzle" of a 300-foot California redwood that visitors can time themselves putting together, there is also a great 2.5-minute "Video" of the photographer's attempt to create a composite photo of an entire redwood tree. The "Living Giants" interactive time line shows the historical moments a 2000-year-old redwood has lived through, including the reign of Genghis Khan, the signing of the Magna Carta, and the settlement at Jamestown.
