Notes: The National Park Service asserts that Corkscrew is an example of a cathedral tree, or fairy ring, similar to Titanic Cathedral. Others suspect that the intertwined trunks formed after several coast redwoods, which grew around a central tree (perhaps of a different species) that later decayed, were buffeted by storms.
