Big trees, small people

Watching these workers in the Presidio yesterday reminds me just how small we are next to a 100+ foot tall tree. In the top picture, a worker hangs from a rope attached to a crane and cuts limbs from a monterey cypress just east of the stables. Below, you'll need to click to enlarge to see another worker, who apparently carried his climbing and cutting gear up this enormous eucalyptus just west of 101/south of Doyle Drive.
