The tree was cut though in 1881 by two men who were paid $75 for the job. The tree quickly became a popular tourist attraction. Throughout history thousands of pictures were taken of it by tourists.
The tree fell in 1960 under an estimated two-ton load of snow on its crown =(
The giant sequoia is estimated to have been 2,300 years old! It's not known as the Fallen Tunnel Tree.
