Long Description:
Standing tall in front of the Yreka Volunteer Fire Department is this Sierra Redwood. There is a plaque in front of the tree that reads:

Hilt is a small town located 22 miles north of Yreka and just south of the California/Oregon Border. I could not locate any information on John Salvestro and why he planted the tree in 1967.
