|A redwood grove in |
If this tree is 30 to 40 years old, as someone estimated to me, then whoever planted it probably isn't working on campus anymore to tell the story.
In any case, students will have lots of time to contemplate this transplant from North America. Redwoods can live for thousands of years and reach heights of more than 100 meters - which would make this one visible from all over Bogotá.
(If this is not actually a redwood, somebody please tell me.)
