Giant redwood in Kranj

Next to the building of the general secondary school stands a 27-meter high giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum), whose top is inclined for about 5 meters. There was a great danger that the precious tree would fall, so in 2003 it was tied to the facade of the gymnasium with steel wires.
