Description

Giant redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum or Wellingtonia) presented to Arolsen by Queen Emma of the Netherlands at her last visit to her birth place in 1932, with a plaque on a boulder.

Because there is no portrait, this tree and plaque officially do not belong on this site, but since it concerns a Queen of the Netherlands, we have included it.
