Bottom portion of the marker; The General loses a limb-Look closely—the General Sherman Tree has changed since this photo (left) was taken. Can you spot the large limb in the photo that is now missing from the tree itself? The second-largest branch on the Sherman Tree fell in January 2006. No one witnessed the crash. Thankfully, it crushed only some fencing and pavement (right).
